Stubbings House gardens opened up for charity

Visitors were offered a rare glimpse of a country estate as Stubbings House opened its gardens for charity.


The 80-acre estate was opened up to raise money for the Thames and Chiltern Air Ambulance on Saturday and Sunday.

Rob Downham, open gardens coordinator for TVACAA, said that last year garden events brought in £60,000.

Stubbings, which is in Henley Road and housed the Dutch Queen Wilhelmina during the Second World War, first opened its gates for the charity last year.

Rob said on Sunday the Stubbings event is popular with visitors.

He said: "Yesterday [Saturday] the weather was a bit poor but it was still a reasonably good turnout.

"The sun's out today. There's quite a lot of people coming through the gates."
