ATF Devon visit to Dartington Hall

Location: Dartington Hall, Totnes TQ9 6EL

 

Booking is now closed for this event.  I am sorry if you are disappointed this time, but numbers are limited.  If you would like to go on the waiting list, please contact me via admin@ancienttreeforum.co.uk.

Dartington Hall is set within 1200 acres of estate, including verdant forests, abundant wildlife and clear rivers. The deer park dates to the 14th century; the hall itself is a Grade I listed building; the gardens are Grade II* listed in the National Register of Historic Parks and Gardens.

All of this together makes Dartington a particularly important and largely intact example of a 20th century designed landscape incorporating the remains of an earlier medieval landscape.

Today it is the headquarters of the Dartington Hall Trust, a charity specialising in the arts, social justice and sustainability.

The tour will be led by Rupert Baker, consultant and woodland manager for the site.
