A Glimpse of the Lost Gardens of Heligan, Cornwall - 21 Photos


We managed to get to the Lost Gardens of Heligan. They are only open, at the time of writing, from Wednesdays to Saturdays and then only for local people who have annual passes.


We found there was lots of room for visitors. Well I guess there should be with over 200 acres to explore.

An archway of apple trees below.


I snapped a few photos as we walked.


Here we have plants growing under glass.


A few lettuce coming along nicely.


We looked in on the old tool shed ...


... and the original Head Gardener's office. It's good to see so much preserved.


A glass house for plants needing warmth.


Next the Sundial Garden.


Probably not at it's best at the moment but a lovely spot in the summer.


Daffs alongside a path.


I think these two were trying to escape.


Now we are approaching the jungle!


Quite a gaggle of trees and plants.


A small jungle lake, with fish.


And more of the same.


Sheep on the open fields under the shade of a tree.


Something a little more formal.


An old building with the history of one of the original gardeners.


And then we reached the end of our chosen walk through The Lost Gardens of Heligan. There is much more to see, but on another day.


Here's a summer post on The Lost Gardens of Heligan:

    1. Hello David, the gardens are a little behind schedule because of the lockdowns but still a pleasant place to walk. There are usually a few different farm animals and ducks to see but they have temporarily been moved somewhere else because of the virus.
