  • When David Verey inherited Barnsley House from his father in 1950, the garden was suffering from lack of wartime labour. David and Rosemary began to redesign the garden in 1960, and have combined a feeling of 17th century with their 20th century planting. Patterns, vistas and year-long interest all create inspiration for visitors. The classical temple, moved from Fairford Park in 1962, has a long vista towards a laburnum walk, in flower at the end of May and early June, and a Simon Verity fountain. The knot garden on the west side of the house, with designs copied from 16th and 17th century books, and the potager inspired by the writings of William Lawson, are Rosemary Verey’s inspirations.
