Overview

One hundred gardens feature in this richly illustrated celebration of historic gardens in Cheshire. From the Duke of Westminister's Eaton Hall to Lord Leverhulme's Thornton Manor and his noted garden village at Port Sunlight, there is a swagger and grandeur about the landscape and garden experiments in the county. Country-house gardens by noted designers abound throughout the county. Public parks feature, too, including Joseph Paxton's astonishing Birkenhead Park, which was the inspiration for New York's Central Park. Other highlights include a garden laid out to symbolise John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress, a cosmic arboretum created by Sir Bernard Lovell at Jodrell Bank and England's most atmospheric rococo garden at Adlington near the border with the Peak District. Exciting modern gardens include one based on Piet Mondrian paintings, another draws inspiration from Alice in Wonderland while a back garden in Sale combines brilliant planting with modern sculpture and ceramics laid out like objets trouves among exotic architectural planting. This is the eighth title in Tim Mowl's celebrated series of books in the Historic Gardens of England series, now being published by Redcliffe Press. Somerset and Staffordshire will follow in 2009.
