English Heritage

Following the sale of Wrest Park in 1917 the magnificent gardens, developed over 250 years by the de Grey family, fell into decline. The new owner John George Murray simplified many of the designs for easier maintenance and neglected those areas furthest from the house. In the 1930s many of the statues and garden ornaments were sold.
