Clemont House and Arboretum

Written by Anne McCord. Posted in Events Past

On the last Saturday in April, the group visited an interesting garden and arboretum belonging to John and Diana Davies. The garden is situated in the village of Little Cressingham in mid Norfolk surrounded by the Ministry of Defence land so the visit was punctuated by the sound of gun fire from the Stanford Training Range. This may sound as though it is not the ideal situation for a garden but the setting is lovely and wildlife is relatively undisturbed in the surrounding area; stone curlews nest in the neighbouring fields and a brambling has been recorded in the garden this year for the first time.
