The Lost Gardens of Heligan in Cornwall

Located near near the village of Mevagissey in Cornwall, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, are one of one of Cornwall’s must-visit gardens.

Originally owned by the Tremayne family for over 400 years, the gardens fell into a state of neglect after the first World War when many of the gardeners sadly lost their lives.

It wasn’t until 1990 that the derelict gardens were discovered by Tim Smit (who went on to create Cornwall’s Eden Project) and John Willis, who was a descendant of the Tremayne family.

  2. Wow that’s amazing! I can barely keep my grass green let alone create something amazing like this!!

  3. These are really beautiful! I love the sleeping stone people! I would love to try to build something like this is my own mystical garden! With a little research and effort this DIY project might just be a success!
