Dewstow Gardens, Caerwent, Caldicot, Monmouthshire
These gardens were created in the late 1800s and were known then as a magical place. As well as numerous surface features what made this garden special were the underground grottoes.
Around the 1950s the grottoes were filled in and it was not until 2000 that the grottoes were rediscovered, excavated and restored.
There are many paths through the Grottoes and in this picture the way on is, by using the handrail, across the water on the stepping stone.
There are waterfalls and fountains, of which this is one, and places to sit even though they may not be meant for sitting.
There are also fish in the numerous pools as you can see.
This is one of the little waterfalls showing some ferns.
One of the entrance/exit passages.
There is pleny of light down here which comes from overhead windows.
