Overview

Presenting 46 splendid gardens, long gone, but captured here forever in their heyday, this guide is organized by region and represents a wide range of periods and styles—from the late 1890s through the 1930s—revealing all the enchantment of Victorian and Edwardian garden design. St Catherine’s Court, with its vast parterres and resplendent turf stairway; the great arcaded hedges at Muntham Court; and the fantastic topiary gardens of Brockenhurst Park are included, as are some of the great rock gardens, immensely fashionable in the 1880s, and the cliff-top garden at Bawdsey Manor. Superbly reproduced, these images bear testament to the rich and varied heritage of England’s gardens.
