Brief description of site
Glen Andred is a picturesque garden laid out by E.W. Cooke from 1866 to 1880 on rocky sandstone outcrops. The garden surrounds a country house designed by Norman Shaw in his domestic 'Old English' style. Features from an early- to mid-20th-century garden also remain.
Brief history of site
The site was chosen in 1865, and was developed by E. W. Cooke until 1880, when the property was sold. Harry Veitch and William Robinson (plantsman and editor of The Garden) are among those recorded as having visited the site and advised on its layout.
