Outing to Muntead Wood: Wednesday 7 June - meet Fernhurst Car Park 1pm for car share see booking form for full details. Munstead Wood, the home of Gertrude Jekyll (1843-1932), is in private ownership, both house and garden are Grade I listed. The house, which is not open to the public, was designed by a young Edwin Lutyens and constructed from bargate stone and other local materials. Miss Jekyll incorporated many of her own ideas into the design, all of which add to its charm. It was completed in 1896. The garden was created on heath land, some thirteen years before the house was built, during which time Miss Jekyll lived next door in The Hut.
