The Lost Garden of Loughrigg
Penn Allen found a collection of diaries that had belonged to her great grandmother, along with a fascinating bundle of letters from eminent plant hunters, William Purdom and Reginald Farrer and her own great grandfather, Charles Hough. Reading through these treasures she finds the long buried tale of friendships, adventures, losses and ultimately passionate love that contributed to the creation of a unique house and garden. Based faithfully on those diaries and previously unseen correspondence, The Lost Garden of Loughrigg is Penn’s account of that true story.
