Tatton Park Garden's history
The 50 acres of gardens at Tatton have been developing for over
200 years with each successive owner of the Tatton Park estate
playing their part in its evolution. Lewis William Wyatt and Joseph
Paxton, architect of Crystal Palace, designed various elements
including the Conservatory which is now open to following a
comprehensive restoration programme and will be `stocked' over
the coming months. Up until the death of Maurice, the Last
Lord Egerton of Tatton, in 1958 the gardens continued to be
enhanced and enjoyed by each owner of Tatton
