The Garden Landscape Guide

Wroxton Abbey Garden

A Jacobean house with a 1727 garden which was partly converted to the serpentine style between 1731 and 1751. There is a serpentine lake, a cascade, a rill and a number of follies by Sanderson Miller: a Gothic Dovecot, the Drayton Arth and the Temple-on-the-Mount. W A Nesfield advised on a formal flower garden on the south side of the house. A knot garden has been added in the twentieth century and was illustrated by Blomfield as an example of a 'modern garden'.
