Newstead Abbey, Nottinghamshire
Japanese Garden at Newstead Abbey is one of the finest gardens in
England. Newstead Abbey was the ancestral home of the poet Lord Byron
(mad, bad, and dangerous to know) and is situated in North Nottighamshire.
The Japanese Garden was created around 1860 and 1900 along with The
Fern Garden, Rockery, Sub-Topical Garden, Spanish Garden by Mrs. William
Frederick Webb who were then the owner's of the Abbey and grounds.
Much of the stone features were imported from Japan. The abbey, grounds
and gardens are now in the care of Nottingham City Council. Entrance
is all year round, there is a modest entrance charge.
