The Chinese Garden, Whatton House :: Shared Description

The Chinese Garden was laid out around 1890-1900, apparently by the first Baron Crawshaw as a means of displaying a collection of oriental bronze sculptures.

These were placed on a series of differently shaped stone plinths, some being sheltered by parasols or so-called pagodas small timber and tile shelters. All of these appear as individual List Entries in the Historic England Listings.

As of 2018, all bar one of the bronzes have been removed (hopefully for safe keeping!), about half of them being replaced with full size replicas of the famous terracotta warriors, maintaining the Chinese theme of the garden.

The Chinese Garden forms part of the Grade II Listed park and Garden attached to Whatton House.
