Felbrigg Hall Garden

A seventeenth century house with garden and park. The park has woods and a lakeside walk. A Ha Ha separates the park from the garden. The garden has a splendid brick dovecote. The walled kitchen garden now contains herbaceous plants and fruit trees trained against the walls. The estate, on a windswept plain, once belonged to William Wyndham, who coined the phrase that the parks are 'the lungs of London'. Humphry Repton used his library when considering landscape gardening as a career and some of his early ideas on improving land were formed wihile looking out on the windswept plain. The Copper Plate Magazine (1793-98) remarked that 'The great beauty of Felbrig Park consists in the extent and magnificance of its woods, chiefly of oak and beech of very large dimensions. To these are yearly adding new plantations, under the direction of Mr Kent, author of Hints to Gentlemen of Landed Property'.
