Biddulph Grange Gardens

Biddulph Grange Gardens are located near Stoke-on-Trent in Staffordshire, England.
National Trust listed, these 15 acre Victorian gardens were created by James Bateman in the 19th Century to showcase his collection of plants from around the world.


The house, a former Rectory (pre 1840 when purchased by Mr Bateman) has quite a fascinating history. (Wikipedia will enlighten those of you who may be interested)
I was given a delightful tour of the gardens and can well recommend a visit, especially in Spring!
