About the film 'Buddulph Grange':
This extraordinary garden was started in 1842, the passion of its owner, James Bateman. Created in the rocky, swampy moorland of Staffordshire it contains some unusual ideas, themes and a wondrous dahlia walk. It is not a dedicated designers delight, but more a creation of a man collecting plants from around the world. Italy, Egypt, China and the Himalayas are represented in his Victorian interpretation. The oldest surviving golden larch (planted in the 1850s) in Britain has pride of place in the Chinese area. Bateman went beyond botany by attempting to reconcile geology and theology in a unique passageway.
Do come and join us as Paul Copley (from Downton Abbey) walks us around these fascinating gardens, talking with the head gardeners from BIDDULPH and Stourhead.
