We've welcomed world renowned landscape designer Tom Stuart-Smith to our growing team of experts, to transform the Hall's setting and grounds and to preserve the ancient woodland.
Tom is a highly accomplished landscape architect and garden designer, delivering projects in the UK and worldwide, including the Queen’s Jubilee garden at Windsor Castle, the Garden of Illusion at The Connaught Hotel, the Keeper’s House Garden at the Royal Academy of Arts, several projects at Chatsworth, and the masterplan for the RHS’s gardens at Bridgewater (near Salford), the largest new garden project in the UK.
In fact, his unique and distinguished style has won the highest accolades, including eight Chelsea Flower Show gold medals, three of which were also awarded ‘Best in Show’.
Tom's proposal will enhance the setting of the Hall, the enjoyment of the 16-acre garden and connect the Hall visually to the surrounding 650-acre park.
We couldn’t be more delighted to him on board. His design style and track record in delivering large projects to the highest standards makes him and his team the perfect partners for our architects, Purcell, and between us we hope to create one of the finest gardens in Lancashire.
