Witley Court & Gardens – Formal Gardens
Great Witley, Nr. Worcester, WR6 6JT
Witley Court’s extensive gardens are some of the most romantic of those in English Heritage’s care, but the fact they exist at all is a miracle. Once one of the grandest country estates in England, it has endured many dramas including a devastating fire in the early 20th century. Its future was secured in the 1950s and today visitors can enjoy formal gardens with a spectacular lake, a French parterre with its massed planting and a vast fountain of Perseus and Andromeda carved from Portland stone.
