Our project, Settlers of the Nene Valley, is exploring, re-creating and celebrating the lives of the Neolithic, Bronze & Iron Age, Roman, Saxon and Medieval people who settled here on the Stanwick Lakes site over the past 5,000 years and we are sharing this with local communities.

"A Walk Through the Herb Garden"
Tuesday, 11th June
7 pm to 9 pm
Book Here

NOTE: If all places have been taken then email us on settlers@rftrust.org.uk and we will add you to a waiting list.

Join us for the first in a series of gardening talks to be held here at Stanwick Lakes. We shall discover which plants might have been used to help previous Settlers build a shelter, feed their families and animals, appear more beautiful, relieve pain or even for passionate or murderous intentions!

We are thrilled to be hosting this talk and delighted that our guest speaker will be Michael Brown, who is an Historical Gardener, and writer of the bestselling book ‘Death in the Garden’.

Michael was Head Gardener of ‘The Menagerie’, Horton, and at Cosgrove Hall. He also created the Medieval gardens at Prebendal Manor at Nassington and frequently works with the National Trust and English Heritage.

All Settlers events are free.
Places are limited so booking is essential.
Standard car parking charges will apply.
