Moor Park, Surrey

Not open to the public but can be viewed from the public road on the other side of the river. The walled enclosure which was Sir William Temple's garden survives and the house bas been converted into apartments. The serpentine area, coloured green on the plan, was seen by Nicholas Pevsner as having ' started a line of thought and visual conceptions which were to dominate first England and then the World for two centuries. It is the first suggestion ever of a possible beauty fundamentally different from he formal, a beauty of irregularity and fancy'. (Pevsner, 1956)
