Elizabeth Gaskell’s House will be giving families the opportunity to explore the beautifully re-established Victorian gardens of this historic house over half term with a new Gardeners’ Explorers Trail.

Running from 31 May – 2 June, the trail will encourage children of all ages to discover hidden spaces, wildlife and plant life in the garden. The gardens have been re-created using many of the plants mentioned in Elizabeth Gaskell’s writing and offer a window into the gardens of the past.

You have chosen!

We are delighted that The House, 84 Plymouth Grove, was our voting public’s object of choice to nominate for a history of Lancashire in 70 Objects.

Amongst our staff, volunteers and trustees the inclusion of the House, as an object, did lead to some interesting and lively debate as to how we interpret the word ‘object’. We do feel however that the House, in its entirety, is a brilliantly appropriate object to nominate. Instead of me telling you why though I will let these quotes from participants do so!
