Story of Heligan Lost Gardens , Cornwall, England
Explore the Lost Gardens of Heligan found in south Cornwall, an Estate home that was built in the 1700’s but due to the death of the entire estate family and workers the building and its grounds were reclaimed by Nature. When an explorer discovered the Gardens of the estate, it must have been mind blowing! Take a look.
Twenty-five years ago, Heligan’s historic gardens were unknown and unseen; lost under a tangle of weeds. It was only the chance discovery of a door in the ruins that led to the restoration of this once great estate. Today, The Lost Gardens have been put back where they belong: in pride of place among the finest gardens in Cornwall.
Our iconic Heligan sculptures, The Giant’s Head, Mud Maid and Grey Lady, wait to be discovered along Woodland Walk. This sheltered path comes to life as these woodland sculptures reveal themselves, emerging silently from the beautiful natural landscape.
