 Description of Garden
The garden is particularly well-known for its woodland plantings established in a disused gravel quarry. A spectacular waterfall cascades between mature rhododendrons, azaleas and choice woodland plants. A south facing hillside garden provides views of surrounding countryside. A scree garden, water features and coloured summer borders are among the many delights.
 History of Garden
Colonel Clive himself and his friends, Kenneth Midgley (Landscape designer), Frank Knight (Director of Wisley), and John Codrington set about creating this peaceful garden in memory of Dorothy, the Colonel's wife, after she died in 1943.
