Dark Woody Garden To Enchanted Wood With Lighting

On a visit to a massive but relatively unknown heritage property, I was struck, not for the first time, by the sheer vastness of the place.   The walk up from the main car park is quite a hike – better on a fine day due to the uge number of large trees lining the broad avenue, which in the summer have much hanging down, making it a little dark and almost ‘Wild Wood’ story time!

Having wandered audible guide in hand, round the house, all very lovely and offering graciousness aplenty, it was time to meander around the garden.  Splendid areas of wonderful plants, herbaeous borders etc.  However what really tickled me was the outdoor lighting.  Fantastic globes of all shapes and sizes were installed in various areas of the grounds.  Some lit the trees and changed colours ocassionally and others conentrated light on the pathways.  It made an already satisfactory visit into something truly magical and a great success.
