Harlaxton Manor, built in 1837, is a manor house located in Harlaxton, Lincolnshire. Its architecture, which combines elements of Jacobean and Elizabethan styles renders the mansion unique among surviving Jacobean manors. Presently, Harlaxton Manor is known as "The British Campus of the University of Evansville." It is an American owned and operated college which is home to students and professors seeking a global education each academic semester. I managed to get in to the grounds and garden with a visit organised by the local W.I., of which Maureen is a member, and at that time the gardens were being totally restored having become totally overgrown just like the gardens at Heligan in Cornwall. This magnificent stairway was the main route up to the extensive garden area on the upper level.
