Behind the Stately Gardens
Berylm on 09/06/2008
|'Stately Gardens', of course, being the gardens attached to Stately Homes, the country seats of the English Peerage - well, can you think of a better way to describe them?! Anyway, this quiz is about some of the amazingly complex work that lies behind what look like the natural views of rolling countryside, created mostly during the 18th century, that these lords and ladies enjoyed - and paid through the nose to achieve! |
Questions are not short (do not take this quiz if you don't like long questions!); info from a selection of TV documentaries, stately home guidebooks and internet websites, including of course the ubiquitous wikipedia!
