You may recall the short piece on these pages in the last edition of Village Link, about the gardens at Cottesbrooke Hall. In August there is the opportunity to peer over the fences and poke around the beds of some of the other gardens in the village. Between eight and ten gardens will be open for the afternoon of Sunday August 15th.

I expect that as in previous years, this will be a great opportunity to wander the length of the village, looking at small and large, simple and complex plots, to inspire and to make us think - and probably rush home and do something with our own lot.

The big challenge for me each year is to see all the gardens, do them justice and still get back in time for a cream tea, though I am thinking of changing my strategy and going for the cream tea first.

Cottesbrooke Village Gardens will be open from 2.00 - 5.00pm on Sunday August 15th. Admission is £5 and both parking and tickets will be available from the village hall - as, I hope, will be the cream tea. (Had I mentioned that cream teas can be had?).

This picture was taken from the sale catalogue of the Langham Estate in 1910. The scene has not changed that much.

If you have pictures of Cottesbrooke, past and present, and perhaps a little history of the village, do contact Village Link. We would love to publish it and tell others about Cottesbrooke.
