Derry Ormond

Introduction

The essential features of the picturesque landscaping in the park were designed by C.R. Cockerell. This includes three lakes, associated cascades and a magnificent bridge. Cockerell manipulated the water so as to maximise the picturesque views within the park and from the house. Derry Ormond Tower is a prominent eyecatcher built to be seen from the house.
