This small walled garden on a south-facing precipice was created for Mariamne Johnes as a secret retreat and botanical space. It included a moss house and an ornamental urn by Thomas Banks, inscribed with sentimental verse by Samuel Rogers. No original plantings survive, although later exotic plants include ginkgo, yellow buck-eye and hiba.
James Anderson designed Mariamne's Garden in 1795.
