This book is a beautifully illustrated celebration of Stourhead, the estate in Wiltshire which features a Palladian mansion and a legendary Georgian landscape garden. The garden has a lake, temples, fountains, grottoes, bridges and monuments of all kinds. Stourhead is particularly famous for its autumn colour, which is rather like the British equivalent of New England. The head gardener Alan Power has been a fixture on Radio 4 every October since 2008, where he previews the coming season and judges listeners' autumn photographs. Alan Power will be contributing four essays to the book, including ones on the trees of Stourhead and autumn at the estate.
