The Union Jack Garden, Wentworth Castle Grounds, Stainborough
The Union Jack Garden, Wentworth Castle Grounds, Stainborough
So called because of the eight radiating paths dividing the area into triangles. This layout, dating from 1713 1719, is a rare surviving example of a formal wilderness garden. In the 18th century wilderness meant an area densely planted with trees and shrubs. The beds were planted with oak and edged with yew, holly and laurel, which were kept trimmed to a height of about 2.4m.
