TRAN­QUIL JA­PANESE GAR­DEN

Countryfile Magazine - - Contents -

An ele­gant bridge leaps a lily pond to­wards a tea house in this serene blend of water, light and colour. This gar­den at the Na­tional Trust’s Tat­ton Park, Cheshire, was cre­ated by Alan de Tat­ton af­ter vis­it­ing the Ja­panese Ex­hi­bi­tion in Lon­don in 1910. He em­ployed a team of Ja­panese work­ers to build a clas­sic tea gar­den around the ex­ist­ing stream and spec­i­men trees and it is re­garded as the finest Ja­panese gar­den in Europe.
