Serpentine Woods, Queen's Road, Kendal, LA9 4PH This is a visit to the garden recently rescued from ivy and oblivion by Kendal Conservation Volunteers. George Whitwell, a founding member of the British Pteridological Society lived in the nearby cottage, and clearly used this to display his remarkable collection of varieties. Other delights under consideration. Packed lunch, I suggest, though there are plenty of eating places in Kendal. No need for boots. Leader: Terry Parr

We last visited Tim and his garden in 2014 when, despite him having not lived there very long, his collection of Asplenium scolopendrium cultivars was already well established. Since then the collection has expanded, not least as a result of his extensive hybridisations, and he has now added a 30` by 10` shade tunnel.
