Trentham landscape garden 1831

Trentham has the merit of being kept in good order; and in the kitchen-garden are the best crops of pines, grapes, figs, peaches, and wall-fruit that we have seen since leaving London. The Marquess of Stafford, judging from Mr. Loch's book on the improvements made on His Lordship's estates, employs his immense wealth as he ought to do; and, on this account he has always ranked in our minds with the Dukes of Bedford and Devonshire. The gardener here (Mr. Woolley) is a very modest man, and of great worth in his profession.
