This DVD explores the 10 acre Grade II listed gardens that are a rare survival of formal garden design of the early 18th century when gardens were an oasis of elegance and beauty, far removed from the hostile world beyond their walls.

 

Step back in time to the 18th century.

 

Castle Bromwich Hall and Gardens were built in 1599 but for decades had been sadly neglected. Archaeologists soon discovered that this was a garden of national importance.

 

The Castle Bromwich Hall Gardens Trust was set up to bring the garden back from the brink of desolation. Plants of the early 18th century were used and the maze and original walls and buildings were restored.

 

This DVD contains classical music and is narrated by David Bennett and Jonathan Cook (Head Gardener) who provide a guided tour of the gardens.

 

This is an archive DVD that we continue to sell because of its popularity.

 

This is a brand new shrink-wrapped DVD which we, as the copyright holder and producer of the DVD, duplicated and which we sell on our site and on eBay.

"I must congratulate everyone for producing such a comprehensive and delightful film of these historic gardens. I could listen to the Head Gardener all day. We have now visited the gardens and they really are splendid. Well done for capturing the delights of these relatively unknown hidden gardens." (J. Browne, Stratford-upon-Avon, UK)

 

"What a video the Castle Bromwich Hall Gardens is. I have several of your videos and this is the best ever. I simply must find time to visit these gardens now that I have seen them on video. The expert commentary and the period music made the video quite magical. Thank you so much." (Mr Johnson, Cheltenham, UK)
