Bathing Pool

This area of the garden was laid out by Lawrence Johnston in around 1912. A cheeky cherub shoots water into the pool, overlooked by the chunky topiary birds on the steps to the Fuchsia Garden. Back in the day, Lawrence and his friends would have bathed and made merry here, today it plays host to dragonflies, two species of newt, water boatmen and hundreds of tadpoles!

Looking back the other way
