Comments Off on A quick audio preview

Regular readers of this blog and our newsletter will recall that last Autumn Sue and the wonderful people from Candide recorded an audio tour of our lovely garden.  The tour describes about a dozen different aspects of the garden, giving some history and the whys and wherefores of the particular planting or feature.

For those of you who have visited this is a chance to relive your experience and, maybe, to have that lightbulb moment when that puzzling bit of the garden suddenly makes more sense!

For those still to visit – and we hope that won’t be too far into the future – the tour is an opportunity to understand a bit about Nant y Bedd Garden before you come along. Hopefully it will encourage you to visit!

The full tour is about 50 minutes long, but now Candide have produced this short preview to whet your appetite!  The full tour can be found by downloading the free Candide app (here’s a shortcut) to your phone or tablet, click on Places, search for Nant y Bedd, click on the audio tour, then follow the numbers on the aerial photo.   Then you can sit back and enjoy Sue’s dulcet tones in the comfort of your locked down living room.

Nant y Bedd Garden

Apologies for the little advert at the end, but this is something to do with the YouTube set-up that Candide needed to produce the clip so it would work on our site.

You’ve seen the pictures, you’ve read the blog, now you can hear all about it from the Head Gardener herself.  A wonderful new app called Candide features audio tours of many of Britain’s top gardens – so obviously they needed to include us!  You’ll have to download the (free) app, then click on Places. At the moment we seem to be first on the list, if not scroll along to find Nant-y-Bedd.   Why the woodyard photo?  That’s where the tour begins!  Listen and find out why.

All in all there’s almost thirty minutes of insight, background and commentary across 13 different areas of the garden.  Broken into manageable chunks of no more than 4 minutes at a time, you’ll get a real feel for the garden and how Sue sees it, whether you have been here or not (and if not, why not??!).

Big thanks to Ludo at Candide for getting us into it.  We think this could be the next big thing in promoting garden visiting.
