    Sizergh Castle, Rock Garden is located in a dell and fed by streams, pools and waterfalls from the lake above. It was created in the early-20th century and originally planted with alpines. It was an open landscape but encroaching conifers have enclosed the garden. The National Trust restored the garden in the late-20th century and replaced the alpines with ferns. The plants are part of the National Collection of Hardy Ferns.

  • England , Basingstoke

    At least four manors have stood on this site, one of which was designed by Alfred Waterhouse. For much of its history the the manor house was the centre of either a farm or an important shooting estate. The grounds of the present Manor have lost all traces of the earlier formality but a Victorian Fernery remains which is a remarkable example of Pulhamite rockwork and may be unique in Hampshire.
