Address: Longstock Park Water Garden, Longstock Park, Stockbridge, Hampshire SO20 6EH.
Voted 'the finest water garden in the world' by the International Water Lily Society. The extensive water garden was created by John Spedan Lewis in the 1940s as a place to work and reflect. The garden has an inspiring collection of plants from around the world, that provide interest all year round.
The seven acres of garden includes two and a half acres of lakes, which are fed by the River Test so the water remains very clear, the maze of interconnecting islands and woodland glades combine to create a different vista at every turn. It is the perfect environment to cultivate a diversity of water-loving plants and there are over 40 different types of water lily alone. All this creates a garden that attracts visitors from all over the world.
This was the last Summer item of the summer season, the money raised would go towards new uniform.
