The National Trust has purchased Munstead Wood, the Surrey home and garden of legendary garden designer and plantswoman, Gertrude Jekyll (1843-1932). The National Trust is fundraising to support the restoration and reimagination of the garden and house; the charity will be working with the community and partners to develop plans for the best way to open the property to visitors in future.
