English Classics: Great Chalfield Manor Garden

Great Chalfield in Wiltshire was built a year before the birth of Henry VIII, and it’s a part of the Cromwell family home in the TV adaptation of Wolf Hall. Let’s have a look at the beautiful garden! Low-growing alpine plants as well as the occasional spire of verbascum, punctuate the path while relaxing the formality. A well-stocked fish pond was an essential feature to a manor garden, both for food and sport. This pond is linked to a moat, delightfully surrounded by informal meadow planting. Red campion is a classic English wildflower that makes an appearance in woodland areas from early spring. Long walks or allées are a feature of Tudor gardens. This one is on the middle terrace, running along the side of the house. Get more of this beautiful garden views below!
