Brodsworth Hall.

Last Sunday we visited Brodsworth Hall gardens which is not far from here and although not very big there is quite a lot to keep you interested. You can also take a tour round the house if you want but we didn't on this occasion. Anyway here are some of the pictures I took.
This is the front entrance to the hall.
To the left side of the main entrance there is a pleasant
 view up to the gazebo type building on top of the hill.
This is looking across the croquet lawns toward the formal gardens, there were no croquet players this day, just some kids rearranging the hoops and doing so seemingly with the blessing of the adult in charge!
The colourful formal bedding garden as modeled by Vicki and my parents.
This is the view looking back from the gazebo.
Another view from the gazebo but looking in
the direction of the archery house.
This is the rose garden with flower beds around the outside.
Looking back towards the gazebo over a sunken garden.
Looking through the trees to the formal bedding garden.
I hope you like the pictures and if you want to find out more about Brodsworth Hall here are a couple of links Brodsworth Hall and Youtube pictures

Such beauty !
Everywhere so manicured, and green.
The layout of the gardens, so typically English, it must have taken years to have achieved this design, not to mention all the upkeep.
Thank you for sharing, such wonders.

Thank you so much for sharing your pics. What beautiful gardens. I wonder how many gardners it takes to care for these gardens.

Oh, I love it! My garden tends to be mismashed and messy. WHenever I see these structured gardens, I want to create one myself.

The Hall is a very impressive building and the formal garden is absolutely beautiful. All great photos.

Very lovely. I've been reading a lot of historical fiction lately about England in the 1500s so your photos give me something to visualize.

There is nothing more beautiful than a formal English garden and this one is just gorgeous. Thanks for sharing, Rob!
