It rained for the twinners and other villagers on a coach trip to the Lost Gardens of Heligan near Mevagissey in Cornwall. Abbotskerswell Twinning Association planned this outing not just for members but with the specific intention of welcoming other villagers and also members other Twinning Associations who would like to join us. 

The trip took place on SATURDAY 10 JUNE. The Lost Gardens of Heligan were rediscovered 25 years ago from the brambles of totally neglected estate. Today, Heligan remains one of the most loved and romantic gardens in the UK, appreciated as much for its beauty and mystery as for the ground breaking restoration project.

Over 200 acres are now a paradise for the explorer, wildlife, plant lover and garden romantic. Victorian Productive Gardens and Pleasure Grounds beckon, along winding paths laid out over two centuries ago. The Jungle takes you on a sub-tropical journey through bamboo tunnels and under majestic tree ferns, giant rhubarb and bananas whilst the estate reveals a lost world of traditional and rare breeds, wildlife and ancient woodlands.

We got wet, but had a lot of fun. Hey ho
