Stone Lane gardens is an unexpected delight. After walking through a small birch plantation and farm you enter the sculpture gardens and a series of unusual, beautiful and downright odd encounters ensue. As you wander round the lovely garden, among the plants and trees and in clearings are sculptures, carvings and metal objects from shoebox size to larger than life. They peek out from bushes and in ponds, stand on tree stumps and plinths, dangle from trees and make a magical couple of hours of discoveries. I have returned to the same exhibition (they change each year) with another guest and found many exhibits that I missed the first time around; so take the time to get into the nooks and crannies and really for what is there. The garden is worth visiting in its own right - it is not formal but the boggy/wet areas and little paths and bridges are resplendent with plants and flowers both wild and introduced.
