This blog is a new venture for the grounds team from spring 2013 and the main objective is to post information about the grade II* listed landscape and garden surrounding the art gallery – Compton Verney.

I do hope that the blog will not only become a device for us to share interesting facts, photographs and information, but will also become a place for people to visit and ask questions about the grounds and our work in caring for them. I’m also personally hoping that the blog will us me to show you how

We shall try to make each article accurate, informative and worthwhile, and will be looking to add approximately two posts per month. Having said this, other duties may need to take priority during busy periods, so please keep with us if we drift a little now and then!

In between posts, you may wish to follow @ComptonVerney on twitter, where you’ll pick up occasional tweets and images from us with the hashtag #CVgrounds

Posts will be assembled by grounds staff and volunteers on many aspects of the landscape and gardens at Compton Verney, including: planting, wildlife, bee keeping, landscape and garden history, and of course art in the grounds. If you wish to experience the greener side of Compton Verney, then please follow us, join in, and show your support for this precious Warwickshire location.

Many thanks in anticipation,

Gary Webb

Head of Landscape and Gardens
