Doddington Place Gardens - Pond and Folly Walk

Pond and Folly Walk

The spring garden has been planted mainly with varieties of malus, magnolia and betula and is underplanted with hundreds of tulips. It is at its best in April/May.

The folly, described by Sir Roy Strong as a ‘piece of Hampton Court’ was built in 1997 by a Doddington based builder, G.L. Streeting, having been designed by Richard Oldfield as a memorial to his first wife, Alexandra, who died in 1995.
