Mottisfont Abbey Garden

A former Augustinian priory beside the River Test with a park and garden. The park has ancient trees and an eighteenth century summer house. The Lime Walk was designed by Geoffrey Jellicoe in 1936. The Rose Garden, planted by Graham Stuart Thomas with pre-1900 shrub roses, is in the old kitchen garden. He wrote: 'I like to think that.. The rose's pomp will be displayed far into the future at Mottisfont where my work of some thirty years collecting these varieties together from France, Germany and the United States, and numerous gardens and nurseries in the British Isles, will not be set at naught'.
