Temple Dinsley has a long and varied history from the settlement of the Knight’s Templar in the 12th century. It is at present being converted into private flats and dwellings. The highlight of the garden’s history is the work carried out by Sir Edwin Lutyens for the Fenwick family, starting in 1909. The planting may be by, and certainly is in the spirit of, Gertrude Jekyll.
Dr Diana Kingham is a garden designer and garden historian and was involved with the HGT replanting of the formal Rose Garden in 1990s. She has carried out a detailed survey of the formal gardens and co-operated with local architects to produce a detailed report for the English Heritage Pilot Scheme for Historic Parks and Gardens.
