Bicton Park Botanical Gardens: Hermitage Open Day

With more dates to be announced the Hermitage Open Day provides a rare opportunity to view inside the Bicton Park Hermitage Summerhouse which is an outstanding example of 19th century rural craftsmanship. Its walls are clad with thousands of ‘fish-scale’ wooden shingles, and a floor consisting entirely of deer bones, pushed into the earth with their ‘knuckle’ ends uppermost. Fragments of stained glass from the original church at Bicton were used for the interior windows and the walls are lined with wickerwork.
