If you want an insight into some of the history and design of the gardens at Arley from the owners Lord & Lady Ashbrook, you need to watch this short video.
Earlier this year Lord & Lady Ashbrook were filmed in the gardens at Arley in support of Leonard Cheshire. Mark Lane, TV Gardener and Leonard Cheshire Ambassador spoke to Lord & Lady Ashbrook about the award-winning gardens. Lord Ashbrook reveals some interesting facts about parts of the garden that you just might not know about.
Leonard Cheshire residents at Hill House were able to see the interview and were then also able to take in 360’ panoramic views of the gardens using virtual reality headsets.
Thanks to a new Clevertouch interactive display unit and some virtual reality headsets, residents at the Leonard Cheshire care home in Sandbach were able to take in the sights of Arley Hall’s grounds and stunning gardens.
David Hursthouse, Assistive Technology Project Manager explained “Throughout the pandemic we’ve been busy introducing new devices and activities to tackle loneliness, keep our residents connected and offer access to brand new experiences, all within the four walls of Hill House, we were so thrilled to be able to able to bring this virtual tour to our residents, who have always loved their visits to Arley Hall. Assistive technology really offers a wide range of opportunities for disabled people and has been instrumental in improving the social wellbeing of our residents during a very testing time.”
