Bampton in Bloom: Visit to the Eden Project

It is a bit over 100 miles to St Austell where the Eden Project is located, and we went on a very wet day in November 2000. 

Although much of the project was still a building site, the sheer scale of the enterprise was breathtaking - far more impressive than photos or TV can show.


The visitor centre was excellent - an interesting exhibition, works of art, an educational video, a restaurant and a shop - and of course you can buy plants.

Taking the 'train' to get a closer look at the biodomes was quite an experience and a trifle damp - and not everyone looked at their best in a hard hat!

The next visit was in March 2001 in the first week of the project being fully open. For some pictures of that event, click here.
