Stowe Landscape Gardens
This is a National Trust Property in Buckinghamshire, in the grounds of the school and house.  The gardens were constructed over the course of the 18th Century, commissioned by Richard, Viscount Cobham and his nephew and heir, Richard, Earl Temple. 
My first visit was in October 2011, but because I had also scheduled Canons Ashby for a visit on the same day, I only covered about half the gardens on the first visit.   Having been somewhat impressed by the property, I made a second visit in May 2012, of which I covered most of the rest of the gardens (even after that, there are still some parts of the property, I haven't covered, so I think there's a good chance of a third visit in the not-too-distant future).
The collection is in a location-based order, based around the numbering system on the map supplied to visitors in 2011 (the 2012 map has been changed to reflect the current entry arrangements, so to maintain consistency, I will continue to use the 2011 map for ordering purposes).
