To one side of this arboretum lies the gravel garden. An area created for ornamental grasses and associated herbaceous planting self-seeds itself amongst the gravel and pebbles. Towards the centre a paved area and seat have been positioned to enjoy the view towards the house and a glimpse of the park beyond.
The Golden Arboretum was planted in 2001 to celebrate Lord Fitzwalter’s parents golden anniversary and many of the trees have a beautiful golden aspect to their appearance.
Grass paths cut through both arboreta allowing grass and other native plants to grow until their late summer cut.
