College Gardens Worcester - Chart or Kit
One of a collection of beautiful counted cross stitch designs from the Celtic Rose Olde England Collection.
Although Worcester is near the centre of Oxford today, it was on the edge of the city in the eighteenth century. This has been an asset in the long run, since it has allowed the College to retain very extensive gardens and playing fields (26 acres, including a lake), and is the only college with on-site playing fields. This may be a factor behind the college's recent domination of the cricket and football leagues. The gardens have also won numerous awards, including the Oxford in Bloom college award every time they have been entered for the competition. The gardens were laid out in 1823 by the then Bursar Richard Gresswell, and are now managed by head gardener Simon Bagnall and a team of seven gardeners.
