"Japanese" sunken garden. Constructed in 1902-1905 as part of the Edwardian re-vamp of the estate (when the wings were added to the House) The garden still exists, having been restored in the 1980s

Tennis Court Surrounded by a Yew Hedge this had originally house the glass-hoses in the Victorian Estate. In the C20th these were moved (and enlarged) to the south of the Walled Garden.

Definitely Hursley Park.



The picture is taken looking north with the South Lawn in mid picture, the Walled (Kitchen) Garden to the East (left) and Pleasure Gardens to the West (right).



The Walled Garden is now completely gone but the South Lawn still remains (though missing the elms) and the Pleasure gardens are still there, including the sunken "Japanese" garden just visible on the far left.



I would be very interested to know more about this picture as I work at Hursley Park and perform the, voluntary, role of site historian. Pre-WW2 images such as this are understandably rare and this is one of the best I have seen of the Cooper's estate.



So if anyone can provide more information about it I'd be very grateful.



Dave

This is Hursley Park, Hursley, Hants. The gardens have now been built over.
