Croome Court Georgian walled garden opens for first time

One of Europe's largest walled gardens has opened to the public for the first time.

Croome Court in Worcestershire was ruined when it was bought in 1999 and its owners have spent the past 15 years renovating it.

Measuring more than seven acres, and dating from the 18th Century, until now the garden has been hidden from sight behind closed doors.

The garden's owners, Chris and Karen Cronin, told BBC Midlands Today's Sarah Falkland the restoration even revealed an early horticultural heating system.
