Lost Gardens of Heligan

Heligan in Cornwall was once a vast estate which fell into decline after the First World War. The loss of the estate gardeners to the First World War, combined with the Tremayne family's declining fortunes had resulted in a wild area of grass, sprawling brambles and self-set trees. Rediscovered after 75 years of neglect, the tangled overgrown gardens have been lovingly restored to their former productivity and beauty. Today the lost gardens of Heligan-- Europe's biggest garden restoration this century - are the most popular and most visited privately-owned gardens in Britain.
