Norfolk Gardens Trust is delighted to announce the launch of its New Book

ENTICING PATHS
A Treasury of Norfolk Gardens and Gardening

The launch will take place at one of Norfolk’s most famous and beautiful homes, Raynham Hall. ‘In all of England there are few lovelier houses than Raynham’ John Julius Norwich said of it. The magnificent Marble Hall will be used to launch Enticing Paths on Thursday September 30th from 6pm to 7.30pm. All NGT members are welcome and will receive their invitations in August.

The lavishly illustrated book, with over 500 pictures through twenty three separate chapters, and 480 pages, retails at £30 and will be available at Raynham at a specially discounted price.

Looking at aspects of gardens and gardening in Norfolk ranging over five centuries, we are certain that anyone with an interest in Norfolk will enjoy this book, which will also make the perfect Christmas present.
