Working closely with Lord Cholmondeley and the family, Barry is helping to usher in the next phase in the history of the garden here with many new and exciting projects planned for the coming years. Barry also designed our Silver Gilt Medal winning gardens at RHS Tatton Park Flower Show in 2015 and 2017. Barry also led our project at the 2016 RHS Chelsea Flower Show where the gardens team recreated our Temple Garden in the Great Pavilion which was awarded a Silver Gilt Medal. Cholmondeley is also one of the lead partners of ‘Cheshire’s Gardens of Distinction’, of which Barry is vice-chair, helping to establish Cholmondeley’s growing reputation on a much larger scale.
