E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Rarely did 18th century owners of property respect the work of their predecessors which is why the garden at Wrest Park is so signifi cant. Here members of the Grey family made a fetish of preserving the horticultural past. The Great Garden was originally created by Henry, Duke of Kent from 1702 and his descendants were determined to maintain it despite changing fashions. Marchioness Grey employed English landscape architect Capability Brown, but only to tinker around the edges. Her grandson, Earl de Grey, rebuilt the house on a different site, but left the gardens intact. Today we marvel and admire this beautiful garden.
