Westbury Court Garden
This is a National Trust Property in Gloucestershire, on the A48 road between Gloucester and Lydney,  which meant that I had passed this many times over the years to and from the Dean Forest Railway, but until October 2011 I had never visited it.    The garden is what remains from a Tudor property, and the construction of the garden began in 1696.    However, the property fell into disuse and by 1960, the main buildings had been demolished and the garden was all set to disappear under a property development.    Fortunately various parties stepped in, and the garden was saved.   At this point though, it was in very poor condition and required a major restoration to bring it back to something resembling its prime. 
 
I revisited the property in 2015, again in conjunction with a visit to the Dean Forest Railway.
