The Gardens

Pleasure Grounds

The landscaped Pleasure Grounds, with its lake and many specimen trees, were established during the 18th century. During the early part of the year spring flowers grow here in abundance, replaced by wild orchids in summer that thrive on the sunny banks below the limes.

Beside the lake is Cannock House, a small classical summer house added in the early nineteenth century. Recently restored it enjoys lovely views of the cricket ground on the West Plain and Downs. The lawns are a sea of snowdrops, daffodils and primroses in spring.

The striking white marble statue by the Serbian sculptor Ivan Mestrovic is displayed in the Three-Arched-Summer House.

Veronica’s Maze

Veronica’s Maze, named after Veronica Tritton, was built in 1991 as part of the celebrations for “The Year of the Maze”. Made of brick and turf, its design is based on the beautiful 16th century embroidery on the Great Bed in the House.
