Crook Hall Gardens 2/7

Over the years the Hall had numerous different owners having changed hands many times, and with each owner various alterations were made to both the Hall and the gardens. The current owners, Keith and Maggie Bell, bought Crook Hall in 1995. In 1996 they renovated the coach house, which is now used as the office and also that year they purchased the meadow in order to open to the public. It was the meadow that they cleared up and planted the maze which is a central feature to the gardens. Here is a selection of paths and gateways through the garden.

Those brick paths are attractive, Brian, and lead you on in
Brian Walbey: They save having to do a lot of mowing I guess.
