Langtons and Grey Towers Estates

In honour of Armistice Day today, Langtons Gardens has released a free online exhibition about the Langtons and Grey Towers Estates in the early 20th century.

Please feel free to browse the images at home, and remember the lives of people from both the UK and New Zealand, who lived and worked here at the time.

Armistice Day marks the day World War One ended, at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month, 1918, and is held in remembrance of those who gave their lives in the two world wars and other conflicts.
