In the 18th century Essex could boast
some of the grandest gardens, some of which had been established
over two hundred years previously, in the country. Many of
the houses have gone and, while some of the gardens may still
exist, their design and beauty have diminished.
This record of the gardens, their
proprietors, their creators, and their plants carries many
estate maps, prints and photographs of a vanished glory. Over
sixty gardens are surveyed, including Audley End, Boreham,
Copped Hall, Danbury, Gidea Hall, Ingatestone, Marks Hall,
St Osyth, Spains Hall, Thorndon Park, Wanstead, Warley Place,
and Weald Hall.
