Priors Mesne, Forest of Dean
Priors Mesne on the eastern edge of the Lydney estate in the Forest of Dean is a large terraced garden set in an old deer park, chestnut woodlands and open meadow. Distant views across the Severn Estuary and the Cotswolds beyond.
“the essence of the thing is to leave as much as possible to Nature”
from “A Gloucestershire Wild Garden, With Some Extraneous Matter (The Curator 1904)
From the time Henry Cook returned from his duties in India and set about creating the landscape and gardens at Priors Mesne, the idea of the Wild Garden from William Robinson’s inspirational book was the original guiding principle.
Today we help the current owners take the design forward, with work in the kitchen garden, house borders, woodland walks and meadows.
