Sheffield Park Garden covers some 100 acres and is set around 4 lakes. It contains one of the finest collections of trees and shrubs in the British Isles.
Again, this garden suffered during the 1987 hurricane and the 1990 storm but restoring the garden plantings continue and here you will see some of the most beautiful trees and shrubs. I have never seen so many rhodos and azaleas.
The series of four great lakes, around which the garden was laid, was designed by the 1st Earl of Sheffield with the advice of Capability Brown and Humphry Repton.
I took pictures of the lakes and the trees surrounding them - they give you a glimpse of what lies in store -you can even see Palm trees, Trachycarpus fortunei. The picture that shows Hilda in it was taken under a magnificent Maple, Acer platanoides 'Reitenbachii' and a Copper Beech, Fagus sylvatica purpurea, is behind her. I also saw a Brewer's Weeping Spruce, Picea Breweriana which was really spectacular.
There is also a picture of the home, but it is owned privately so we could only guess at what it might look like inside..
