Special Joint Event: Lustleigh Garden Society together with Lustleigh Society and LEAP….a film showing of  “Home of Springs, Trengwainton”.

February 27 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm

£5.00

Wednesday February 27th at 7.30pm Special Joint Event: Lustleigh Garden Society will be hosting, together with Lustleigh Society and LEAP  a film showing of  “Home of Springs, Trengwainton”.

Trengwainton Garden near Penzance sits within the ancient Penwith landscape – its story has never been told. Now managed by the National Trust, a house has been situated on the grounds since at least the 16th  Century. With stunning panoramic aerial photography and specially commissioned music score, the documentary has been filmed over three years with unprecedented access. Come on a seasonal journey of discovery and explore the history and heritage of this remarkable garden and the people who have left their legacy on the land.

The main documentary is accompanied by a short film “ Hearing the Horizons Endure “, directed by Florence Browne (2017) . This 6 minute film is an exploration of horse logging, a traditional method of forestry upkeep, deep in Devon’s Teign Valley. Friends since childhood, John and Alan live and work traditionally in Devon’s woodlands alongside their heavy horses, and are carrying on this low-impact technique of clearing and maintaining forests.

We have managed to book this through LEAP’s contact with the residual rural touring programme offered since Villages in Action ceased. Consequently we have been able to get a very good offer and can keep the ticket price down to £5.00. We hope lots of you will come to enjoy this film from AWEN PRODUCTIONS and if in Cornwall take the opportunity to visit.
