Sheffield Park, once the hunting ground of kings, was transformed into the most beautiful of gardens by successive owners over 300 years. Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown channelled the water flowing through the garden into a rolling landscape with great lakes at its heart. The upwardly mobile Earls of Sheffield made it their rural seat, delighting in their place in the country, which became second home to historian Edward Gibbon and, later, a focus for cricket-lovers everywhere as a supremely beautiful ground, built by the 3rd Earl, drew players and visitors from around the world.

Featuring brilliant new photography and previously unpublished archive images, this souvenir guide brings all the strands of Sheffield Park’s fascinating history together. Readers and visitors will delight in this astonishing landscape garden where water reigns supreme, reflecting the ever-changing shades of glorious trees, shrubs and plants.
