Lowther Castle is located in Penrith, Cumbria and its gardens were abandoned in 1935, but before that they represented centuries of careful cultivation by successive generations of the Lowther family. The castle and its grounds have been transferred to a charity called the Lowther Castle and Gardens Trust a few years back, so that the restoration would begin. Although the site opened to the public in 2011, the full restoration of the garden is expected to take 20 to 25 years. It is a very beautiful place to visit if you’re around The Lake District.
