Walk in the gardens at Parcevall Hall, North Yorkshire

Originally created by Sir William Milner - a founder member of the Northern Horticultural Society who lived at Parcevall Hall at Skyreholme in what is now the Yorkshire Dales National Park from 1927 until his death in 1960 - the Hall's gardens were restored following decline during the 1980s and are now open to the public.

Though the Hall itself is Grade II listed, it is not open to regular visitors and is instead used by the Bradford Diocese as a retreat and conference centre. Knowing their audience well, however, the Gardens have a tea room that is open daily during the summer season, with views to the surrounding countryside and artwork by local artists inside.
