Into the Spider Garden. The layout of the Spider Garden, so called because of its wrought iron entrance gate (seen here) depicting a spider in its net, has not changed since the 1840s. The gate was made by Eric Stevenson of Wroxham in 1936; he later became known for his wrought iron work in ten English cathedrals. The gate is nicely complemented by a circular spider web, laid out in flint, created in 1998 by landscape gardener James Smith > Link. This walled garden covers an area of one acre.

Hoveton Hall gardens surround Hoveton Hall, which was built between 1809 and 1812 by Humphry Repton and his son John Adey Repton. In the 1940s the parkland was ploughed in order to provide food during the war years and most trees were felled. In 1993 the arable sections of the park were re-grassed; presently the grounds encompass 15 acres of formal gardens, lakes and woodland. Hoveton Hall and gardens has been owned by members of the Buxton family since 1946.
