Newby Hall Gardens, Ripon
Today the gardens at Newby Hall have been totally restored and replanted over a ten year period by Mr and Mrs Robin Compton.
Newby Hall Gardens near Ripon were influenced by Lawrence Johnston's Hidcote Manor in Gloucestershire, Major Compton decided to create a main axis for the garden running from the south front of the house right down to the River Ure.
The axis consisted of double herbaceous borders flanked by double yew hedges with a broad grass walk running down the middle. Off it he planned compartmented gardens of formal design like rooms off the main passage of a house.
The gardens he created over 50 years cover 40 acres and make a great contribution to 20th century gardening design.
