Whole Society Meeting - Day 2


Lowther Castle and Estate

We will commence the visit with an introduction to the history of the estate and the management of the 2000 ha. of woodland comprised in it. Attention will focus on the recent restoration of the former pleasure gardens and the opportunities which have been taken to develop them as landscaped grounds for public access and recreation.

The AGM will take place during lunch time.

In the afternoon the tour will resume, visiting the summerhouse to appreciate the wider landscape setting and specific areas undergoing restoration.


Coach travel to the venue will leave from The North Lakes Hotel & Spa. 

Parking is available at the hotel on first come first served basis. 

Lunch is included.
