The walled garden of an eighteenth century house. The house overlooked an uninteresting rectangular lawn, which was transformed by the addition of a wide gravel terrace with steps flanked by stone urns on plinths. Year round interest has been created by the new knot garden and sundial, the box hedging seen here awaiting their first trim in early June; the inner beds are planted with Angelique tulips. Knot gardens and parterres look best when seen from above as this one is from the upstairs bedrooms.
