Wolterton & Mannington Estate
The gardens around this medieval moated manor house feature a wide variety of plants, trees (around 50 varieties) and shrubs in many different settings.
Throughout the gardens are thousands of roses especially classic varieties. In the Heritage and Modern Rose Gardens are roses in areas with designs reflecting their date of origin from the fifteenth century to the present day. Work continues to replant areas planted in the 1980s. Complementary planting of other species to fit in with the dated gardens continues every year. The Contemporary Garden features more roses, shrubs and herbaceous borders with brighter colours and modern varieties.
Near to the Hall is a knot garden with scented plants and on the South Lawn is a classical temple and the recently planted Sensory Garden with plants selected for touch, sound and taste, as well as smell and colour.
