Situated in north Norfolk on the River Bure, the garden was designed, built and planted by John and Roger Last between 1963-1990 and further enlarged and developed from 1990 on by Roger Last.

One of its chief elements is the series of buildings and follies – a grotto, gothic arch, gothic tower, classical pavilion, contemporary stainless spire which form focal points and design features.  There is an abundant use of water, in ponds, streams, small lake and fountains and the varied planting throughout is lush and informed

The five acre garden is in three distinct parts.  The main and more complex layout on an intimate scale near the house – and there are two landscaped meadows.  Each area has its own character and atmosphere.

The garden has appeared in numerous books, magazines and newspaper articles.  The latest in ‘Country Life’ in 2014.


The garden is only open to group visits by prior agreement.


Corpusty is 11 miles NW of Norwich, 6 miles south of Holt on the B1149.
Leave the small Corpusty by-pass and drive into the village.
The mill is in the centre, straddling the River Bure which here forms the Corpusty/Saxthorpe boundary.
