As you know one of the quests on my list is to photograph 100 gardens from this book. I started to write about some of them and have posted a couple of visits here, but I wanted to have them all in a list so I know where we’ve been and I can make plans to cross off a few more.
Here are the ones we have been to so far.

That’s forty-three. Only fifty-seven to go then….
There are a couple of gardens I am sure we have been to but every time I look at the photos we have and try to tie them up with images of the gardens on the web I get really confused….. They are Waddeson Manor and Wimpole Hall. Guess keeping records would have its benefits!
And still worthy of a visit but not in the 1001 book -
- Mosely Old Hall
- Coughton Court
- The Courts
- Calke Abbey
- Little Moreton Hall
It’s good to get them all down in a list. Now to keep adding….
