Woburn Abbey Garden

One of the great English parks. The deer park is very large. Woburn is the most fully realised of Repton's projects. A large Red Book was presented to the 6th Duke of Bedford in 1802. Repton proposed a lake, a serpentine river, an American Garden, extensive planting, a bridge, and a Thornery. Today, the Woburn Abbey garden's character is Victorian. There is a hornbeam maze, herbaceous borders, ponds, a woodland garden and a Chinese dairy overlooking a pool. The curved greenhouse is used as a camellia house.
