Wyncliffe Court Gardens are Grade 2 listed and designed in the Arts and crafts style. The Edwardian gardens feature sculptured topiary, a sunken garden, stone terraces, a summerhouse, a walled kitchen garden, ponds and an archery lawn leading on to wooded walks. Designed by Henry Avray Tipping, friend of Gertrude Jekyll and Editor of Country Life magazine, they were completed in 1922 and are probably the best example of their type in Wales. Wyndcliffe Court showcases contemporary garden sculptures by local and well-known British artists.

Herefordshire sculptor Ed Elloitt, who specialises in life-size mystical figures, is holding a solo exhibition of his work from January 14 to 31 at Trumpet Corner Art Studios just outside Ledbury.
The exhibition, Pieces of an Angel, includes his most recent sculpture commission, a wooden angel, which the National Trust has had on display at the Mottisfont estate in Hampshire. Ed was one of eight successful artists who won £250 and had materials supplied to create a figure for the winter Angels exhibition.
Ed, from Tarrington, has had a fascination with art since a young boy, when drawing was a favourite pastime. After completing a foundation course at the university of Gloucestershire, he achieved an honours degree in Fine Art, specialising in Sculpture at Cardiff School of Art and Design.
