Calke Abbey and Garden, near Derby
Although the Gardens at Calke Hall are not extensive this National Trust property is a great day out
The gardens at Calke Abbey were laid out by Sir Harry Harpur and his son between 1770 & 1820. The last and perhaps largest has not yet been started.
The formal garden has good bedding and herbaceous borders and the Kitchen Garden provides a wide range of fruit and vegetables.
In the walled garden there is the only surviving Auricula theatre which was built to display these beautiful plants.
Combined with a visit to the House this is a great day out.
