The Writer's Garden

The Writer's Garden goes inside the lives of 20 influential authors and poets to discover the roles that gardens played. From Sir Walter Scott's fairytale Scottish castle to Rupert  Brooke's riverside retreat in Cambridge; from Virginia Woolf's rural Sussex idyll to Beatrix Potter's windswept hill-top farm in the Lake District each garden provides new insights into the writer's work, life, solace and inspiration. The book also includes a chapter about John Clare and his inspirations.

Other writers include:

Churchill, Austen, Dickens, Hardy and Wordsworth.

Written by Jackie Bennett and great photograhy by Richard Hanson, the book is £25 and is now on sale in the John Clare Cottage.
