Event description: Mrs Gill Burton has kindly offered Family Carers the opportunity to enjoy a tour of Longner House and gardens. This fine historic hall was designed in 1805 by John Nash and built on the site of the previous house for the Burton Family and it has grounds laid out by Humphrey Repton. Members of the Burton family have lived here sine the 14th Century.Everything in the house originates from the family. From the extensive lawns you will see beautiful views over the Severn Valley. There are borders are a mix of rose, herbaceous and shrubs also ancient Yew wood. There is walled garden with mixed plantings, garden buildings, tower and garden larder. There is a woodland walk around an old moat, this is unsuitable for wheelchair users. The tour lasts about 1 1/2 hours and then carers are free to explore the garden on their own. The tour is free to family carers but places are limited so it is offered on a first come first serve basis. Transport to Longner Hall is not provided but there are parking places available. It is important you book your place. If you require further details please contact the Carers Support Line on 01743 341995
