Blandford nursery gardens

Previous - Next

Blandford contains three nurseries, kept by Gill, Stead, and Barnard, which we had not time to see, but of which we are promised some account by Mr. Rogers, the very intelligent gardener at Bryanston House. There is a handsome old Grecian church, and some good tombstones in the churchyard; and near are some houses with very remarkable brick chimney tops, and, in particular, one behind the New Inn, the shafts of which are ornamented with slender three-quarter columns, with capitals of brick, of the same kind as that of the shaft.
