This online talk with Derek Adlam explores the history of Welbeck Abbey's great flower gardens through a rare series of glorious full-colour images.

In 1889, Winifred Anna Dallas-Yorke married the 6th Duke of Portland. They soon started work to renovate Welbeck Abbey in decadent Edwardian style. These extensive improvements included a grand stately home garden which was started around 1905.

Welbeck has a history of magnificent gardens including medieval monastery gardens, pre-civil-war water gardens and 18th-century landscape gardens.
