Restored dry stone wall on Dyrham Park’s lost terraces

Thanks to an ongoing conservation project, visitors to Dyrham Park near Bath can enjoy a woodland walk with new views of the house and gardens from terraces which have been restored. Two hundred volunteers spent a year working to restore the lost terraces, which once formed part of the 17th-century Dutch water garden.
