Lampposts and trees in Ashridge College grounds
Lampposts and trees in Ashridge College grounds
I think that the lampposts delineate the route of a drive curving around the eastern side of Ashridge Management College's grounds, however this drive is not obvious on the map.
The Gardens at Ashridge House
The Gardens of the house were planned by Humphry Repton, in 1813 and his design showed 15 different styles of garden to the south and west including a lawn, rosary, flower garden, souterrain and grotto and monk's garden. It was completed in 1823 by Sir James Wyatville in a way which retained the spirit of Repton's original design and remains intact today as the finest surviving examples of Repton's work.

When the estate passed to the Earls Brownlow in 1849 she added an Italianate garden and extended the gardens south into the park creating an arboretum, Wellingtonia avenue, rhododendron walk, formal moat, paths and skating pond.

The Ashridge (Bonar Law Memorial) Trust is currently working to preserve the gardens and have already restored the Italian Garden, Rose Garden, Herb Garden and flower garden, but further work is needed, for example on the grotto, and the bridge over the moat, depending on suitable funding being available.
