Garden 1

We have a gem on our doorstep in the form of a beautiful garden at Clemley House in Duddon Common. Next year it has been accepted as part of the National Garden Scheme, a nationwide organisation for seeing private gardens for charity.

I understand that it is attractive all year round.

Sue, the owner, makes everyone very welcome (she even serves lovely home-made cakes) and is passionate about wildlife. On our visit we saw so many varied butterflies and birds which was wonderful. There are many seats around for a quiet sit. All the wildlife features are labelled and explained.

The proceeds for entry and refreshments go to a local good cause- Cheshire Wildlife Trust.

Sue is also happy to give talks to local organisations.

Again in those days, there was the...
