The House and the Gardens at Scampston are both open on 12 July and our Chairman, who has worked at the Gardens will be available to give a conducted tour of the Gardens during the afternoon if you choose to join him. Entry to the House and Gardens will be charged by Scampston Hall but admission to the Greenhouse Complex will be free of charge to BHHS members for the AGM - see details in your Spring Newsletter.
