Britain's biggest 'secret' garden gets a makeover

It has been described as Britain's biggest secret garden and for the first time in over half a century Wrest Park in Bedfordshire will be open to the public.

Designed nearly three hundred years ago by some of the top designers of the age, it had been closed off and overgrown but has now been restored.

The gardens span over 90 acres and the restoration was part of a 20-year English Heritage programme.
