Degree of success

 

The unique history of Painswick Rococo Garden has been put to good use by head gardener Steve Quinton.

It formed part of his studies for a degree in Garden and Landscape History at the University of London.

Steve, who joined the Painswick tourist attraction two years ago, fitted his studies around work at the 18th century garden and travelled weekly to London for the course, which was paid for by the Friends of the Rococo Garden.

Vicky Aspinall, chair of the Friends, said: “I am thrilled that Steve has done so well and we have enabled the garden to use its resources to encourage and support staff development.”
