Studley Royal is not your usual English garden, and contains few flowers.

John Aislabie created this late 18th century garden known as Studley Royal., including statues, follies, deer park and the water gardens - pools, lakes and canal features. All the features of Studley Royal are readily accessible via well designed walks. John's son William bought the Abbey ruins in 1767 and they became the star attraction in the 'gardens' now managed by the National Trust!

I have only added a few brief notes and left the pictures to inspire you to visit Studley Royal.
