Parham has been shaped very strongly by the women who have lived in it and looked after it over the past centuries. The first mistress of the House was Elizabeth Verney of Fairfield in Somerset, a goddaughter of Queen Elizabeth I.
We are delighted to announce the arrival of Andrew Humphris, who took up his role as Parham’s new Head Gardener last month. Andrew comes to Parham from West Lodge Estate in Dorset, where he has established and improved upon a new garden and landscape, working in conjunction with leading designers.
Christmas at Parham is a time of quiet family gatherings and reflection on the year that has passed. Lady Emma Barnard recounts some of the more memorable anecdotes of Christmas from bygone days, including the time in 1939 when her great-grandparents took in 30 evacuee children from Peckham in South London.
Garden Team member Anna Mariscal shows us how to make a Christmas wreath.
