DAWS Hall nature reserve in Lamarsh will be looking rosy on its last open days this year next month.

The gardens will be open between 2pm and 5pm on Saturday, July 7 and Sunday 8, with attractions including a 350-year-old Cedar of Lebanon, a huge tulip tree in full flower and many unusual roses.

Daws Hall owner Major Iain Grahame said: “The old fashioned rose collection numbers over 100 different varieties and is one of the largest collections in the country.”

The reserve also houses hundreds of rare trees and shrubs, a large collection of waterfowl, a wildflower meadow and an observation beehive.

The site regularly hosts environmental education courses for schoolchildren but is only open to the general public a handful of days each year.

Entry costs £4 for adults and £1 for children, or £10 for a family. Homemade cream teas and cakes will be available and parking is free but no dogs are allowed. All proceeds will go to Holy Innocents Church in Lamarsh.
