High Glanau 1724

Monmouth, Wales

Brief Description

High Glanau, overlooking the Usk valley, was the last home of Henry Avray Tipping. The gardens he created over a seven-year period in the early-20th century have a well-preserved structure, including terracing and a pergola. There are also wild gardens with winding paths in woodland areas, one in a steep-sided valley with a stream.

History

Tipping built a house on his extensive acreage in 1922-23 and created the gardens between 1922 and 1929. The house is now privately owned and an occasional venue for specialist courses in garden design.
