Trust launches arm­chair vis­its

Garden News (UK) - - About Now -

Vis­i­tors can ex­pe­ri­ence Na­tional Trust (NT) gar­dens, houses and beauty spots from the com­fort of their arm­chair, or when­ever they want, us­ing dig­i­tal down­loads to mo­bile de­vices or com­put­ers.

In the first of three episodes, NT head gar­dener at Stour­head Alan Power takes lis­ten­ers be­hind the scenes at Clive­den, ex­plor­ing the world-fa­mous parterre and rose gar­den, while pon­der­ing on the mys­tery of a newly-dis­cov­ered sound cham­ber.

The se­cond im­merses lis­ten­ers in the land­scape, mon­u­ments and lakes of Stowe Land­scape Gar­dens in Buck­ing­hamshire. From Septem­ber 21, Alan heads to Mount Ste­wart, County Down, North­ern Ire­land. The gar­den is home to a wide range of ex­otic plants.

Lis­ten­ers can stream or down­load each episode on iTunes, SoundCloud or Acast.
