Biddulph Grange


Prologue

 

 

Set just into Staffordshire, this beautiful garden of Victorian design is a must-see. Largely the result of working partnership between James Bateman, resident at Biddulph, and designer Edward Cooke, this spectacular array of gardens provides an almost surreal experience for the visitor. Within just a few steps, one can walk from China to Egypt, from a wild Scottish Glen to a formal Italian garden.

Restored since 1988 by the National Trust, this garden triggers all of the senses, with dividing walls and hedges providing the element of surprise, by ensuring many of the garden’s features cannot be seen from a distance. There is something to see in all seasons, and the nature of adventure and intrigue means that Biddulph appeals to all, no matter what age.
