Waterperry history

A manor house has existed at Waterperry since before 1086.
In 1948 Beatrix Havergal bought the estate and established the famous Waterperry School of Horticulture and laid the foundation of the gardens you can see today.
She retired in 1971 and the Horticultural School was closed and the property acquired by the School of Economic Science who run residential courses for its students of philosophy and economics.
Very nice too!
