James Neal, gardener at Michelham Priory will talk about this site of a former Augustine Priory in Upper Dicker, East Sussex. The surviving buildings are owned and administered by the Sussex Archaeological Society and are Grade I and Grade II listed. The 7 acre gardens are enclosed by England’s longest water-filled moat, which teams with wildlife and indigenous waterlilies. Cloister and Physic gardens weave together features of medieval gardening. Over 40 yrs of developments have created a variety of features including herbaceous borders, orchard, kitchen garden and tree lined Moat Walk.
