Today and unusually Paul and i were out reviewing a property together. The reason for this is the property in question is something special. One of the Gardening jewels of the National Trust. Bodnant Garden in the Conwy valley is one of those properties where you think ‘I don’t believe get paid to do this work!’ We are starting on a journey with the property in terms of looking to the future and helping identify and deliver a more sustainable one. There are plenty of opportunities identified by William and the team. What we saw today and in the coming weeks will be covered in a series of blogs.

We started the day looking at water management and feeding the many lakes, rills, leats, ponds, fountains was an enormous feet of Victorian engineering. Making the system fit for the future is one of those interesting challenges. The property team have the answers and its a mater of helping them
