These photos were taken on a walk around Dinton Park detailed on the National Trustʼs web site.

The light mist and watery sun both added to the slightly unreal atmosphere of a park that seems to belong to two different houses.

Philipps House

Philipps House

The park actually belongs to Philipps House built in the neo-Grecian style between 1814 and 1817 for William Wyndham (1769-1841) by Sir Jeffry Wyatville. However it is also overlooked by the much older Hydeʼs House that dates, in part, back to the 16th century.

Dinton Park is open at all times; for Philipps House, see the National Trustʼs official web site detailed below. Hydeʼs House is not open to the public, although the garden is opened one day a year under the National Gardens Scheme.
