Origin Of Name

The name is taken from A. E. Housman’s cycle of poems about Shropshire, published in 1896, where our rose gardens and nursery are situated. A. E. Housman’s ashes are buried near St. Laurence’s Church in Ludlow, Shropshire. David C. H. Austin, born in Shropshire, is himself a Shropshire lad.
