Visit to Oxford Botanic Gardens 5th July

As a follow-up to the talk by Timothy Walker in September 2016,  a group of SCLHS members visited the Oxford Botanic Gardens on Wednesday 5th July 2017.


The group were shown around the gardens and briefed on their work and plans by guide Sandy (extreme right above).   For some other photos of the visit, click here.


The visit started in the two glasshouses and then moved on to the main gardens, which were a picture in the warm and sunny conditions.

The Gardens are divided into two main sections, the Walled Garden and the Lower Garden.
