The Vineyard at Castle Coch

Handwritten copy made by Andrew Pettigrew of a lecture he gave to the Royal Horticultural Society in 1891 on 'The Vineyard at Castle Coch', twenty eight pages of lined paper, each handwritten on one side only, in blue ink. The notes describe his research visit to vineyards in France and how the results were used in the subsequent planting of vineyards for the Marquis of Bute in the vicinity of Castle Coch, South Wales. The results of the viticulture up to 1891 are described.
