Erddig

Introduction

The park at Erddig Hall was landscaped in the late-18th century by William Emes, who removed formal elements of the early-18th-century park. It contains an unusual water feature and some surviving tree planting of the period. The grand formal garden dates from the early-18th century and was designed in the Dutch style around an ornamental canal. Its main features survive unaltered, and have been well restored.
