The Gardens at Trentham (picture heavy)

The main view from the terrace. A small platform has been built to give the view as would have been seen from the house (now dillapidated). The lake can just be seen right at the end.

More views of the formal gardens.

And again.

View of the house from the Trellis Walk. Although the trellis walk was open the best view of the flowers was from the outside.

The house and chapel. Most of the work is brick covered in plaster (to save cost) with only the far buildings being of stone.

The rose garden (actually one side of the trellis walk).

A small garden folly.

The river Trent runs through the property and was once quite foul with waste from the potteries in Stoke.

The river exits into a large lake...

seen here.

Long ago, I fancied going there, and never did manage it. Too far away now. Nice set.
