The HLF has offered a substantial grant towards the £1.3m restoration of the spectacular Italian Gardens at Westonbirt House, the neo-Elizabethan country house designed by Lewis Vulliamy in Gloucestershire. Donald Insall Associates prepared the Schedule of Work for the grant application on behalf of the Holfords of Westonbirt Trust which administers the grounds now occupied by Westonbirt School. Work will include restoration of the lake, various balustrades and stone garden features and the neo-baroque pavilions which are of stone and brick supported by an iron frame.
