100: The Day Our World Changed – The Afternoon at Heligan

07 Aug

The afternoon at The Lost Gardens evoked the Heligan of the past beautifully with the laundry girls washing the sheets and putting them to dry on the lawn, the gardeners working hard in the kitchen garden and suddenly being told of the outbreak of war and that they would be needed. All the time strains of music could be heard from the local bands and our very own singers from Claire’s three choirs, brought together as the Ingleheart 100 for the day. Click on any photo for detail. Thank you to the lovely Mr S for some of the photos.

The next post will show the rest of the afternoon and evening as the tragic events of the war unfold.

      I agree, so many fabulous photos – we could make quite an album if we put a selection together. 🙂
