A visit to Berrington Hall

Part of a fundraising effort to restore the walled garden. Pineapples in the 18th century were a sign that you were rich and putting one on the table when entertaining both showed your status and was  a sign of friendship and hospitality

We do the same with home grown apples, it shows our status to the world. I hope they raise the money, walled gardens are wonderful if used properly
Bill Phillips: We do it with home grown weeds
I declare!
Bill Phillips: Well indeed Ginnie.

Brilliant radio clip Bill, I have not heard this for so,e time and had forgotten. It is both funny and clever but also sad to hat that we will probably never hear such talent again.
Bill Phillips: One of the generation that learnt their trade in theatres and music halls. It is all about timing which he had to perfection and so many today don't

Our pineapple price is around 50p and the wife and I like to brag how rich we are; by showing one off on the table before eating it later that day. Sometimes, someone actually sees it ...
Bill Phillips: They are £1 here for a modest sized one...Ange makes a very fine pineapple upside down cake
One of the most unusual things I've come across in a walled garden.
Bill Phillips: Not something you would see every day
