Garden Open Day on The New Hall Estate

Posted by

Here’s another lovely event – an open day on the New Hall Estate. Being neighbours we often walk through the grounds with Cosmo – it’s beautiful! I’ve been longing to see inside the walled garden – so this weekend is my chance! 

I’m also looking forward to seeing the lovely Daniel Killeen’s exhibition of his artwork (paintings of Coast, Loch & Forest, from Shetland to New Hall) in Old Cottage on the estate.
