Visit to Aske Hall Gardens


Several members of Richmond Rotary and their partners spent a very interesting and enjoyable couple of hours on the morning of May 2nd 2024 walking around Aske Hall Gardens.  There is a public footpath through the grounds but our group was taken to areas which are not usually seen by the passing walker.  As we walked Mrs. Val Hepworth gave us a talk about the history of Aske Hall, its beginnings and changes of ownership throughout the years, leading to the development of the grounds as they are now.  The folly with its sweeping views and the walled garden (seen from the outside due to it being the site of the owner's home) are magnificent.  The bluebell woods, not yet in flower, promised a blue carpet very soon.  There are magnificent trees within the grounds - Scots Pine, Cedar and White Hornbeam to name but a few.

After finishing the walk most members adjourned to the Mocha Café for lunch.

Thanks to Val for her guidance and Robert H for arranging the morning.
