Florence Court Glasshouses Restoration Project
We have been appointed as Main Contractor by the National Trust for the Florence Court Glasshouses Restoration project.
Located inside the walled garden, the Kitchen Garden would once have been at the heart of the estate, providing work for twelve full-time gardeners who produced valued crops for the House and wider estate. Sadly, the garden and its original glasshouses fell into decline following the departure of the last Head Gardener in 1947 and it was only during archaeological excavations by the National Trust in 2014 that the original footprint of the glasshouses were rediscovered.
This heritage project has been funded and supported by a National Lottery Heritage Fund Grant, National Lottery Communities Fund, the Landfill Communities Fund, Ulster Garden Scheme and Stanley Smith Horticultural Trust.
The project will see the installation of two glasshouses on the footprint of the two original glass structures. Alongside, an extensive community, educational and volunteer activity plan.
