Broughton Grange is considered one of the most significant private contemporary gardens in Britain. Set in over 400 acres of parkland, farmland and open meadow, with parkland planting that owes its origins to the Victorian era, Broughton Grange’s history dates back to 1620 initially as a small farm cottage associated with the Saye and Sele estate at neighbouring Broughton Castle. Owned by the Morrell family for some 200 years, the present owners have been resident since 1992. The landscape designer Tom Stuart-Smith was commissioned to transform a six acre south facing field into a walled garden. This impressive new garden, walled on two sides only, features three individually themed terraces and was designed in strong relation to the surrounding rural landscape. Formal and informal areas combine to make this a special site including newly laid arboretum with many other ongoing projects. The Head Gardener, Andrew Woodall, will welcome our group and the visit ends with refreshments. Please note: uneven ground with quite a lot of walking and steps.
