Successful Sarum Saturday

Dinton Park Hosts Three Sarum Events Thanks to the generous permission of the National Trust and local ranger Paul Rowland Sarum had access to Dinton Park for two days (and a night) to put on a variety of events that made full use of the small but beautiful grounds of Philipps House.
