A sad Farewell

A special place: The Tudor mansion presiding over it’s tranquil lake.


The Vyne Gardens blog has been running for almost four years. During that time we have brought you stories, images and educational articles. We have celebrated the glorious wealth of fauna and flora that make the gardens and woodlands such a wonderfully interesting and special place for so many of you who visit to enjoy quality time with families and friends away from the busy life of our cities and towns.

As editor I have enjoyed my time researching stories, discovering secrets and little know facts, capturing images on my trusty Nikon SLR, talking to staff, volunteers and you our visiting public. Above all the fun and satifaction of sharing the many facets of this beautiful place and receiving all the wonderful comments from readers from around the UK and even beyond our shores.

During my work on the blog I have learnt so much from so many knowledgable and interesting souls who have generously shared both their time, energy and insights across many areas such as horticulture, ornithology, gardening, history and archaeology to name but a few.

So it is sad to announce that this will be the last post here on the blog. Things are changing within the National Trust and we are moving to new formats to communicate with our supporters and visiting public.

In parting I would just like to say a big thank you to everyone who has contributed to this endeavour over the past four years. It’s been a pleasure to work with you all.

Geoff Smith (Editor)

    Thanks Geoff for giving me the opportunity to share my photographs and for the work you have put in to running the blog. Let’s hope that NT come up with something as good at sharing the magic of The Vyne.
