Sheffield Park

Posted on: December 4th, 2011 by Rob

Sheffield Park is another Trust landscape garden where ‘Capability’ Brown had a hand. It has been further enriched with new features and planting since. The four lakes at Sheffield Park are linked by cascades and waterfalls.

Wild flowers, daffodils, bluebells, rhododendrons and azaleas add drama and colour. The stunning water lilies add another spectacular sight in summer. In autumn the dazzling foliage of trees and shrubs takes over.

This magnificent informal landscape garden was laid out in the 18th century by ‘Capability’ Brown and further developed in the early years of the 20th century by its owner, Arthur G. Soames. The original four lakes form the centrepiece. There are dramatic shows of daffodils and bluebells in spring, and the rhododendrons and azaleas are spectacular in early summer. Autumn brings stunning colours from the many rare trees and shrubs, and winter walks can be enjoyed in this garden to.
