Description: Bring your own picnic and enjoy a summer evening in these beautiful gardens in the outstanding landscape of Cranborne Chase. Now recognised by English Heritage as a Garden of National Importance, they were created by General Pitt Rivers in 1880 and were the first privately owned gardens to be opened for public enjoyment. Discover the history of Rushmore and the Cranborne Chase with Philip Gready, involved with the Rushmore Esate since 1982, initially as Assistant Land Agent, working closely with owner Michael Pitt-Rivers. A Trustee to the Estate since 1992, he continues to act in an advisory capacity. Talk 7.15 p.m., followed by a tour of the Gardens with Head Gardener, Andy Rampton.
