Wednesday 30th - Outdoor painting session in a private garden at THE WHITE HOUSE, VILLAGE ROAD, DENHAM, UB9 5BE. The River Misbourne meanders through this well-established 6-acre garden, past lawns and mature trees and hedges before disappearing into the picturesque countryside beyond. The beauty of the shrubberies and flower beds, rockery and rose garden, laburnum walk and walled garden will amply reward those who undertake the journey. Unrestricted parking in village.
