The Water Garden


Trebah is a sub-tropical garden in Cornwall which has a stunning coastal backdrop.

In 1931 Trebah was acquired by the Fox family who built Glendurgan Garden in Cornwall. It was first laid out as a pleasure garden by Charles Fox who paid meticulous attention to the exact positioning of every tree. During World War II, Trebah was used for military purposes – the assault on Omaha Beach in Normandy was launched from Polgwidden beach at the foot of the garden.

In 1981, Tony and Eira Hibbert bought Trebah as their retirement home and it was opened to the public in 1987. The Hibbert family gave the house, garden and cottages to the Trebah Garden Trust, a registered charity, to ensure that the garden could be preserved for future generations.

This painting is of the water garden at Trebah Gardens, Cornwall which has been built around a natural spring that flows downhill through a series of pools. In spring time Candelabra Primula produce an amazing display of flowers – well worth a visit if you are in the area.

Shirley Netherton

I am a Cornish artist who has spent many years developing my unique style of painting with acrylics so that today my work is instantly recognisable. I feel lucky that the hobbies which I enjoy in my free time contribute towards my intense enthusiasm for painting. The photographs I take whilst walking and kayaking become the reference material for my work. I am so fortunate to live in such a beautiful county, surrounded by the sea with so many inland waterways - truly inspirational.
