Reviews and comments on Writtle College


Writtle College is an agricultural college 4 miles west of Chelmsford and is a partner of University of Essex. The college participates in the NGS open gardens scheme and was open on 15th March 2009 and will open again on 12th July. It is well worth a visit. There was a lot more to see than I anticipated with a glasshouse which is very well planted and well established, various gardens including ',hot and spicy', Centenary garden which was designed in 1992 by one of the students(to commemorate 100 years of the college., an acid border, Hill on the Green with lots of winter interest(ie Cornus, Narcissus, Hellebore etc, North Lawns with some superb trees (including various acers and the Giant Redwood as well as lots of wildlife areas including homes built (presumably by the students) for insects etc., a garden centre, restaurant and more. Well worth a visit on open day, and of course, being part of the NGS scheme it helps charities!
