Consall Nature Reserve
Standing high above Consall Forge and Valley, the gardens are spread over 70 acres and feature six lakes, various follies, summer houses and packhorse bridges. The gardens feature over 4 miles of walks and include many covered seats to allow visitors to pause and enjoy the spectacular views, regardless of the weather.
The creation of the gardens over a period of fifty years was the work and vision of William Podmore. He removed three large pit banks, a legacy of the industrial era, and constructed dams, ridges and roads to produce the spectacular vistas of today. His book Consall Hall Landscape Garden - The Hidden Vally Revealed tells the tale.
