Discovering Thames Chase – Guided Walk at Thames Chase Forest Centre

Jul 22nd to Jul 22nd Thames Chase Forest Centre

Warley Place was the home of renown horticulturist Miss Ellen Willmott. The house was demolished in 1939 and the gardens quickly became overgrown. The site is now managed as a nature reserve by Essex Wildlife Trust.

A donation of £3 is requested to support the work of Thames Chase.
