The Stumpery

The ‘Wall of Gifts’ is another eye-catching display. It includes pieces of architectural stone collected by HRH The Prince of Wales, as well as donations crafted by students from The Prince’s Foundation.

Other features include a bronze relief of HM Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother and an unusual stone-built water feature crowned with a canopy of Gunnera manicata, also known as giant rhubarb.

The water feature close to the Stumpery is made of Hereford sandstone and Spanish holey limestone. It contains four Pacific Ocean clamshells from Edward VII’s garden, Sandringham.
