Calke Abbey Garden

Calke Abbey is being preserved as 'a graphic illustration of the English country house in decline'. One wonders if a similar policy should be applied to the walled garden and pleasure ground. The gardens include an 18th century glass domed orangery, walled gardens, physic garden, peach house and the unique Auricula Theatre.
