The gardens

South Lime Avenue

The South Lime Avenue was planted by Montagu Knight during the second part of the nineteenth century. The Avenue sustained much damage during the storms at the end of the twentieth century. The avenue effect has been retained by planting clumps of trees in the Park which, when viewed from the side, can be identified as discrete plantings. The views along the Lime Avenue are very impressive, especially in the early spring when the avenue is carpeted with snowdrops, daffodils and then bluebells.
