Heywood Gardens: The formal gardens has a walk lined with pollarded lime trees which leads to a formal terrace overlooking the surrounding countryside. Another terrace overlooks one of the lakes dug, where it is possible to spot moorhens, kingfishers and other waterbirds. In the sunken garden, circular terraces descend to an elliptical pool, where small statues of turtles gaze inquisitively at the grand fountain. On the top level a loggia, roofed with red tiles, includes an inscription taken from the writings of Alexander Pope. In the wall that surrounds the garden, each circular window frames a view of the landscape.
