Peover Hall Gardens: Peover Hall was built in 1585 by Sir Ralph Mainwaring. It is a fine example of an Elizabethan manorhouse with its carved staircase, panelled walls and a long gallery. During the Second World War, General George S Patton used it as headquarters of the American Third Army. The nearby St. Lawrence's Church displays the American flag side by side with the Union flag in remembrance of that time. The carolean stables are very interesting and have remarkable plasterwork ceilings. Set in its 18th century landscaped park with large gardens enclosed with topiary work, walled and herb gardens. There is an avenue of pleached limes, a circular lawn, yew hedges, a rose garden, a white garden, a pink garden and a lily pool with a summer house.
