Elvaston Castle, Borrowash Road, Elvaston - South Derbyshire

Country house, 1633, altered C18 and early C19, has formal gardens to the south, south east, pleasure grounds to the north and north east, and a range of courtyards and outbuildings to the west. Gardens were laid out 1830-1851 by William Barron. Permanent repairs to garden structures, survey report and strategic options report all completed with grants from Historic England. A 10 year vision and plan for Elvaston has been produced and a masterplan adopted to take these forward. The Castle has been re-roofed and the orchid house has been re-glazed, with the entire roof now water-tight.
