KCWC Heale House Garden

Heale House itself, located on the River Avon, is not open to the public. It looked like it was undergoing extensive renovation but this is only a roof repair.
The red bridge is a copy of the Nikko Bridge. It and the 8-tatami tea house were brought back by Louis Greville when he left the Embassy in Tokyo at the end of the 19th century.

We were free to wander the gardens. I especially enjoyed the "tunnel garden" made of apple trees. There were many other beautiful flowers, including pink Musk roses (left).
