York Gate Garden in Leeds
This unique garden - York Gate - was created by the Spencer family.
York Gate Garden was undoubtedly inspired by some of the outstanding gardens of the time such as Lawrence Johnston's Hidcote.
The late Robin Spencer created in just one acre, a garden which by the early eighties, was regarded by many as one of the best small gardens in the world.
Like Hidcote, and many others that followed suit, York Gate is made up of a number of distinct garden 'rooms'. What makes this garden exceptional is the exquisite detail to be found within each: the pavement maze in the driveway, the espaliered cedar in the pinetum, the meticulous arrangement of stone setts and gravel along the path in the canal garden.
