Shrubs farm has undergone a miraculous transformation over the last 30 years. 270-acres of featureless farmland have been carefully returned to the sort of landscape which was traditional in North Essex.

About seven thousand trees have been planted with three new woods and five spinneys, all the arable fields now have two or six metre margins, five miles of hedge have been allowed to regenerate or have been planted afresh. In addition we have extended the gardens and planted a small orchard as well as a park around the house of some fifty acres.

We are delighted that this transformation has succeeded in restoring the landscape from what was little more than a prairie and take great pleasure in welcoming visitors to enjoy and learn from our gardens and walks.
