This is Hatfield’s knot garden, with its lovely low maze and topiaries.
The site of the garden originally lay under a wing of the house which was devastated by a fire in the early 19th century. The brick paths were handlaid by the prizewinning hedgelayer Larry Laird, from bricks recycled from a demolished bothy in the grounds, by hand. Although the garden was only created in the 1980s, the final result has the feel of a renaissance formal garden.
There is also a much larger yew maze in the east garden, which is a Victorian creation – this garden is only open to the public on designated days.
