Chris Smith, Garden & Parks Manager, Canons Ashby

The Gardens at Canons Ashby

Canons Ashby is a rare surviving example of early 18th century garden design, typifying the formal style then fashionable. The layout and structural elements of the garden have remained the same ever since. In 2008 the garden underwent a restoration programme - while the ancient layout remains unchanged, new planting schemes have been implemented based on plans drawn in the 1800s by Sir Henry Dryden, evoking the character of the garden as it was in its Victorian heyday.
