Topiary is popular in many gardens.

The entrance to the garden at Mill House at Muggington near Derby is through a huge privet hedge which has been cut into the shape of a cottage, complete with chimneys,
and a wooden door completes the entrance.

More ambitious is a fine privet hedge in the garden of Rose Cottage at Kilnwick near Driffield in East Yorkshire.   The hedge has been cut to form the shape of a complete three piece suite
which consists of two arm chairs and a settee, a most unusual sight.

Amongst the many items of topiary at Chastleton House in Oxfordshire, a rabbit and a train
are plain to see.

Topiary in the gardens at Warwick Castle.


This fine bird can be seen roosting in a garden at Bishop Monkton in North Yorkshire

Meanwhile at St Asaph in North Wales ! !
