The Lost Gardens of Heligan

The gardens, created mainly in the 19th century, of were one of the finest gardens in England of their period, with 57 acres of planted gardens, around 100 acres of ornamental woodlands. Scattered throughout were follies and temples.

Henry Hawkins Tremayne, John Tremayne and John Claude Tremayne in turn created and planted the gardens and ornamental woodlands with walks and rides. They were noted botanists and horticulturists and by the 1900 had a amassed a wonderful collection of trees and shrubs from all over the globe, many of which can be seen today. It was the centre of the community with 20 house staff and up to 22 garden staff.
At the end of the war only around 6 of the 22 garden staff survived to return to Heligan. The house was returned to the family in 1919. In the changed post war world the Tremaynes were not able to keep such a large staff, and decided in 1920 to rent the house out. The new tenants were unable to maintain the gardens, which went on a gradual decline. They remained a time capsule, as they were not altered by any modernisation. That was until 10 years ago when the work started to return them to their former glory. This is where the name the Lost gardens of Heligan comes from.
