Reddish House, Broadchalke

Reddish House is a large country mansion rebulit in the early 1700s and home to Sir Cecil Beaton for more than 30 years during which time he extensively remodelled the large parkland gardens.

The walled cottage garden walls had suffered various problems since, including a local farmer driving into and demolishing one part of the original cob walls and modern builders adding the dreaded sand and cement render.

Edward single handedly restored a large proportion of the higher garden walls and his efforts were singled out in an article about the garden restoration by Country Life magazine in 2019. Involving new cob sections and refacing mixtures of breeze blocks and modern bricks the work took many months over 2 seasons.
