Brief description of site
The garden was designed and planted by Mrs Joyce Robinson since 1946. There are vistas to the fields beyond. The garden was planned to form a quiet area of lawn broken with large plantings of trees, shrubs and perennials. Wide paths and clearings of gravel wander through the garden in which good garden plants are allowed to self-seed. The site was further developed by the well-known garden designer, John Brookes.
Brief history of site
The modern overlay to the garden originally created by Joyce Robinson is by John Brookes but still has a considerable amount remaining of Mrs Robinson's design.
