The Mount

The Mount is the highest point in the gardens and is designed from the West wall built in the 19th century and going towards the house. This part of the garden predominantly consists of mature trees, especially Calocedrus decurrens, Redwoods and Sequoia sempervirens. There are multiple beds densely planted with herbaceous perennials for year-round interest. There are marvellous views looking back towards the Abbey, across the ponds and the 160ft Centenary Fountain.
