Description
A hunting country, littered with lodges and forest clearings, Northamptonshire is an untouristed, pre-war part of England—and yet, as with the other counties that Timothy Mowl has explored, it has its share of unusual gardens. Stoke Park's twin garden temples are Michelangelesque designs, worked up by Inigo Jones, featuring perfect High renaissance pavilions, while nothing even at Kew equals the sultry orchids of the domed Palm House in the Italian Garden at Castle Ashby, poised above a deep octagonal fish pond. And the islanded waters with Princess Diana's temple at Althorp has become a garden Lourdes to her memory, complete with pilgrims of royal nostalgia. As with the other books in the series (written to call attention to the individual garden characters of each of England's counties), scads of illustrations, including maps and photographs—16 pages in color—underscore Mowl's engaging text.
