Englefield House Gardens

There is an inscription on a stone staircase in the garden which reads, “If you help towards Englefield garden either in flowers or invention you shall be welcome thither”. This was written in a letter to a friend by Sir Edward Norris in 1601 and shows that a garden at Englefield was being planned and cared for four hundred years ago.
