Our deputy editor, Lauren Shantall, travelled to the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands – and back in time – to visit a formal 18C-style English garden designed by the late Sir David Hicks.

Here we have a couple more pictures of the Riversfield Farm garden, where Sir David decreed an architectural garden, a formal potager, a dovecote, as well as a Gothic-style pool pavilion, all in the manner of an 18thC English garden.

Find out more about Sir David Hicks by visiting his webpage, where you can see a collection of his furniture, carpets and fabrics, as well as images of his interior design work.
