This area was one of the first areas to be planted by Col. Stephenson R Clarke at the turn of the twentieth century. Whilst being severely hit in the great storm of 1987, a number of unusual trees remain, alongside the magnolias that are magnificent in March.

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Most of the azaleas were selected from the famous Knaphill strain, bred by the two Antony Waterers, father and son, over a 60 year period. The flowers are better formed and cleaner in colour than many of the more modern hybrids.

During May, the deciduous azaleas transform the area with a stunning kaleidoscope of colour and scents that glorify the air. In the autumn, the deciduous azaleas give a wonderful display of colour with a centrepiece of magnificent Cornus kousa.
