Sheffield Park Garden

A romantic house (not open) with a park. The park was designed by Lancelot Brown (c1775) but has developed into a major twentieth century woodland garden and arboretum. It has a collection of exotic trees and shrubs, established by the Third Earl of Sheffield, from 1876-1909, and by Arthur Soames, who owned the estate from 1910-53. The Earl created the balustraded bridge (1882), the cascade and the Middle Lake. He also started the arboretum. Soames was responsible for most of the shrub planting. He loved rhodendrons. The Sheffield Park Garden is famous for its display of spring flowers and is at its best in the autumn.
