Box House garden makeover

Wilf Wilson's garden had become overgrown as it had become to much to keep on top of, so the Westerdale and Rosedale keepers have stepped in to clear overgrown areas and are planning to make things more manageable by sowing more of the area grass.

The garden used to be a picture with lovely roses and other flowers such as dahlias; artists would sometimes stop and paint the scene from the roadside.

The cottage is still very pretty and it will be much better when Wilf is not almost trapped inside!
