Woodland Grotto

In 2001 we renovated the shrubbery, which over the years had become overgrown. This now gives you a wonderful woodland. Trees and undergrowth have been cleared, revealing spectacular views over the river, which you can enjoy from strategically placed benches along the way. It has been replanted with the original natural species of trees and shrubs which you would expect to find in an eighteenth century shrubbery. Meander through the shrubbery walk to the Grotto, an ancient folly built following the first world war in order to provide work for the soldiers who had recently returned to the village.
