Outward views

Sometimes it’s easy to forget what is going on outside the walls when you’re knee deep in restoration duties. Croome has so many beautiful historic features, and you don’t need to stray far from the gardens to appreciate some of them. Saint Mary’s church looks over the landscape from its strategic position.



The London Arch, as it’s known to us, towers over you as you enter Croome.


and the Mansion sits in its rightful place, at the centre of the stage.


The Rotunda is arguably the most significant of the seven ‘eye catcher’ follies scattered around the park. Located just outside of the Walled Gardens to the south east, it is lined with a magnificent plaster work interior.

Scooby doesn’t care for plaster work, though, because it is not edible.
