The Garden Guide

Charlecote Park

A Tudor house with a fine gatehouse and an eighteenth century deer park. The park was designed by Lancelot Brown in 1756. He widened the River Avon to give 'natural and easy' level, and carried out planting in the grounds. He did not remove the avenue. In the nineteenth century a terraced garden was made between the house and the Avon. It has marvellous water steps. On the north wall, there are figures of a shepherd and sheperdess made by John Cheere.
