St mary's house at bramber and nymans garden april 2018

The group was blessed with fine weather for the trip to St Mary’s and Nyman’s. We were shown round by two excellent and enthusiastic guides. Following the chilly weather many of the trees and shrubs were only just beginning to show their leaves and flowers but this afforded us so fine lengthy views across the various areas. The bluebells were still putting on a magnificent show. Many people expressed the view that they would like to return to this venue and also to see inside the house, as this was not possible on the date of our visit.

There was an abundance of tulips, rhododendrons and euphorbia in bloom at Nymans and the views over the Kent countryside was magnificent. The sun shone and it was an ideal temperature for walking around the grounds. The semi ruined house was of great interest and the room custodians engaged readily in conversation, giving an insight into the background of the house and its residents
