American Museum Gardens


Tuesday, 19 July 2022 at 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Tuesday 19th July @ 2pm a visit to the gardens of the American Museum, Claverton. Bath

Cost will be £18.00 to include, garden entry, tour and refreshments.

Following our talk last year, one of the garden team will lead us on a tour of the rennovations of this registered garden and see the planting schemes discussed.

Located in an area of outstanding natural beauty, the hilltop site of the Museum’s home, Claverton Manor, takes full advantage of the spectacular views over the Limpley Stoke Valley and River Avon.

Remnants of the old Italianate style manorial pleasure gardens and parkland, dating from the 1820s, can be seen within the grounds, including period features such as the grotto, the balustrade and curtain walling, as well as ornamental stone work. This work is attributed to George Vivian, son of the original owner of Claverton Manor, John Vivian.

Full details will be published soon but pre booking can be made by responding to Peter Hills using the email [email protected].
