Inspiration

The vast spread of the Roman Empire, and subsequent fall, left great swathes of Roman Ruins across Central Asia, North Africa and Europe; Amphitheatres, Baths and Spas, Cloisters, Colonnades, Loggias and Temples. Such Ruins have been, and still are, some of the most visited sites in the world and have helped to inspire the rise of the Italianate Garden style. We are fortunate enough to have the Roman Baths in Bath and the Italianate Gardens of Iford Manor within miles of the Stoneworks.
