Lost Gardens of Essex

Author: Wendy Stubbings
ISBN: 0 86025 525 5


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.

80 pages, 37 photographs, 21 maps
