Brief Description

Features of Thriplow Bury include a kitchen garden, orchard, pond and dovecote.

History

Thriplow Bury was established in the mid-18th century as a private residence.

Detailed Description

The gardens are approached via a lodge and drive bordered with lime trees. In 1884 there were two lawns with shrubberies, a walled kitchen garden, orchard, pond and dovecote. An early-19th century plan proposed the removal of the garden in favour of an extensive landscape design and provided excellent shelter for plants. The old three-sided moat is lined with trees.
