Topiary Demonstration at Cliveden - 12 September 2001

A rather gloomy day, but we all met at the Orangery at Cliveden Estate where our walk around the grounds of the Cliveden estate at Taplow started.  We were split into two groups and were shown round by Philip Coton, the head gardener, and one of his assistants.

One of the groups in the Long Garden.
