Seasons at Longstock

Voted 'the finest water garden in the world' by the International Water Lily Society, the Longstock Park Water Garden is a place of relaxation and serenity, restructured and developed in the late 1940's by devoted naturalist and founder of Leckford Estate, John Spedan Lewis. 

Spedan Lewis devoted his spare time to nature and restructured the water garden to complement each season as it came. Each plant was grounded to brighten up the cold winter months and shine bright in the Summer sun.
