The Whim


The older woodland planting at The Whim gives a record of forestry development. There are remnants of mid-18th-century avenues running north and west from the house in an area once known as The Wilderness. There is a circular forecourt with flowerbeds around it and the structure of the late-18th-century walled garden can be made out. It contains the remains of three ornamental canals.
