You really can understand how much time and effort went into shaping these big houses gardens when you visit a place like Belton.
Add another 200 years for the trees to mature and I think we get the rewards of those original visionary builders. The maze, folly and avenues of trees are something else.
But just as interesting are the gardens clustering around the house - a riot of colours and smells.
