‘A Garden…is the Purest of Human Pleasure. It is the Greatest Refreshment to the Spirits of Man’

Cranborne Manor in Dorset

As we are no longer able to visit gardens, these photographs of Cranborne Manor were taken when I was last there in April last year.

I love this garden. Originally laid out in seventeenth century by John Tradescant, it’s about beauty, understatement and simplicity. There are no signs telling you where to go or what not to do, no magnificent views or brightly coloured bedding flowers – wander around the garden, interact with modern sculpture and be seduced by its charm.

More photos and details of the Manor’s history can be found here.
