Archaeologists restore 'Nelson's garden'


A walled garden that delighted one of history's most famous couples is being restored to its former glory.

In 1802, Lord Nelson and Lady Emma Hamilton took tea in this ancient garden in Monmouth. But for years the grade II listed site has been derelict.

Now a team of archaeologists and volunteers are restoring the garden with the aim of opening it up to the public in the summer.
