The Garden Guide

Wightwick Manor Garden

A Victorian house with an early example of an Arts and Crafts garden. The planting was designed (1887) by the artist, Alfred Parsons, who illustrated William Robinson's Wild Garden. The terrace was designed, at a later date, by T H Mawson, who wrote a book on The Art and Craft of Garden Making. At Wightwick Manor, the stone terrace has an oak balustrade. There are yew-hedged enclosures, herbaceous borders, ponds and a copy of the Mathematical Bridge from Cambridge. The house design was influenced by William Morris and has a collection of Pre-Raphaelite paintings.
