In a Monastery Garden (3)

Edington Monastery Gardens was a place deemed fit for a day out for groups of Lavington folk. In two previous instalments headed ‘In a Monastery Garden’ we have seen outings from the Congregational Church in Market Lavington enjoying grand days out before the outbreak of the First World War. Today we are moving into the 1920s and see another group of people from our parish enjoying a row on the lake.

We know next to nothing about these gardens, except that they were a popular venue.

The photographer has captured a lovely shot of Lavington people enjoying what would still have been a rare day out. Sadly, we do not know who the people are.
