Heritage Open Day – Amersfort, Potten End
September 16 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Amersfort, a fine Arts and Craft House and garden, designed by Ernest Willmott and planted by Gertrude Jekyll.
This introductory talk and guided tour of the gardens gives visitors a rare opportunity to see Ernest Willmott’s early 20th century design and garden layout, with its steps and terraces, a great deal of which remains intact. We shall also learn of the colour scheme which Gertrude Jekyll planned for the all-year round effect. The aim of the design was to blend into the surrounding countryside.
