The Walled Garden, Holkham, Norfork

In the summer of 2013 I discovered the Walled Garden at Holkham Hall, North Norfolk.  I say discovered, in the sense that I hadn't visited before, but I suspect not many have.  Dating back to the 1700s, the gardens are midway through a significant restoration project.  Once complete the gardens will prove to be a spectacular attraction, but it was nice to see some of the older and neglected aspects of the garden before it gradually goes through its transformation.

I revisited in the summer of 2014, with some changes already evident including the planting of a vineyard, and some new signage, but it still retains its special character.

Here are some images from the past two summers:





























Thanks for looking.
