Heligan History: Lost Gardens, Lost Gardeners
A Commemorative Album of Heligan through the Twentieth Century, providing an eagerly awaited snapshot of the past for all those curious about what happened at Heligan before the gardens were opened to the public. The latest award-winning Heligan publication tracks the history of this atmospheric place over the past century and features photographic and documentary archive material that conveys both the inspiration and leadership of the Tremayne family and their dependence on a large and loyal staff. Estates such as Heligan were not only closely connected with the local community but also with the wider world. Therefore stories from beyond its boundaries are also touched on throughout this evocative journey back in time. Compiled by Heligan staff, in co-operation with descendants of the Tremayne family and local families whose forebears worked at Heligan. The stories of staff who served in the Great War are the main focus of the book, which was published on 11th November 2008, to mark the 90th Anniversary of the Armistice. The book concludes with images by Herbie Knott taken in 1991, soon after the derelict gardens were discovered.
