The Walled Garden
The Kip engraving shows an enclosed Dutch garden to the north of the Gallery. In its present form the garden owes much to Henry Vane FIetcher. He walled in two sides in the 1730s to encourage fruit trees, the other two are bounded by yew hedges, planted by Lady Vane over a century ago. It is now a spectacular flower garden with beds and borders of spring bulbs, herbaceous and annual flowers, set against the dramatic backdrop of the house and trees.
