Project Description

The garden at this manor house was first established in C17 by Sir John Danvers. The Japanese garden is the final piece to complete the grounds. An existing stream was recoursed, re-built and rejuvenated.  Pentland paddle stones were set as ‘floating’ stones amongst the Highland glacial boulders. Black polished pebbles sit mixed with Scottish Highland pebbles to filter the flowing water. A traditional Torii Gate was installed – the gate’s purpose is to divide ‘our’ world with the spirit world. The stones were moved and installed by hand. 

Garden designed by Roderick Griffin.
