Suffolk’s ‘historic’ parks and gardens project awarded grant
A £36,000 grant to discover, celebrate and protect these landscapes in Suffolk has been awarded by Historic England.
Claire de Carle, of Buckinghamshire Gardens Trust (BGT) hoped it would inspire people to research Suffolk’s lesser-known historic gardens.
Mrs de Carle, who is chair of the BGT, said: “Hardly any of Suffolk’s gardens are on the register, and it’s quite hard to get them listed as they’re quite ephemeral, so that’s why Historic England has earmarked Suffolk for this project.”
Suffolk Gardens Trust volunteer support officer Karina Flynn said the project “aims to encourage Suffolk communities to help protect historic outdoor spaces for everyone to enjoy”.
