Gardenvisit Editorial

A house and garden made in 1718 for a friend of two famous empiricists, John Locke and Robert Boyle. The design is French-influenced, with a straignt canal. But it has the earliest example of a Gothic revival folly and an octagonal temple designed by William Kent in the 1730s.

    There is sufficient history and space to really want to gently stroll about without any rush..it isn't too crisp in its maintenance and yet isn't scruffy.
    The walks both in the shade of trees or out in the open down the canal are lovely.
    I hope the owners of this place allow greater visiting opportunities..it could get close to being as lovely as Rousham.
    The daffodils are the cream on the cake.
