Coton Manor in Northamptonshire is a 17th century manor house set in 10 acres of gardens. The gardens were laid out in the 1920s by the present owner’s grandparents, and developed and extended over the years. Susie Pasley-Tyler gave Ken Crowther a guided tour of the grounds.
Mottisfont Abbey is a historical priory and country estate in Hampshire operated by the National Trust since 1957. The grounds include a walled garden which would have previously been used to grow food for the abbey. In 1972 it was turned over to a rose garden as Assistant Head Gardener Howard Brisland explained to Ken Crowther.
