Maidenhead Garden Inns

Previous - Next

There are two Inns at Maidenhead having gardens, one by the water side, which is chiefly remarkable as a landscape garden, and the other at the Sun Inn, at the opposite, end of the town, noticed Vol. III. p. 481., which is an ornamental or flower garden, in the Dropmore manner. It is in as high order as when we last examined it, and a distinguishing feature, on entering it, is an acuminated semiglobe, like the Antheum at Brighton, of pelargoniums, the base planted in soil raised to a certain height of the requisite curve, and the remainder in pots on a stage, which completes the figure.
