Tommy Craig's

Thomas Craig was one of the most influential gardeners in Slaley Hall’s history. His service started in the 1940s with the Hunting family and clearly he was well thought of as his employment continued well into the Priestmans ownership when the bought the house in the 1960s. He was born in Slaley village and along with Head Gardner, Lance Robson, created gardens that the Priestmans proudly opened to the public; in particular the British Red Cross and the R.S.P.C.A. to support their charitable activities.

 

Many photographs and descriptions of the flora and fauna grown on the estate are catalogued in the historic information held with our concierge team; including particular recollections from Lance Robson’s wife Helen, on how livestock had to be introduced into the gardening team’s remit when food was scarce after the war.
