Oxfordshire Green Week: Abbey House and Garden Tours

June 10 @ 14:30 - 17:00

 

Keeping the Heat In!

House & Garden Tour at The Abbey Sutton Courtenay with heritage expert Richard Oxley

 

Monday 10th June, 2.30 to 5pm, Free

During Oxfordshire Green Week 2019, we invite you to come and see behind the scenes of our glorious grade 1 listed Medieval Manor House surrounded by 4 acres of wildlife-rich woods, productive walled garden and grassland just south of Abingdon.

As the charity which stewards The Abbey as a retreat and conference centre turns 40 we celebrate the restoration achieved since 1979 and look to future-proofing the building for those who will live here during the next 40 years.

Trust for Oxfordshire’s Environment (TOE2) and Low Carbon Hub have supported us to institute a number of low and medium cost measures to make our hard-to-treat buildings warmer and cosier.

Join with us on a guided tour of the House and Gardens with Richard Oxley, conservation architect and specialist in retrofitting historic buildings to see what we’ve been up to. And what our next steps are! Home made tea and cake on sale. All proceeds support restoration at The Abbey.
