The grand landscaped gardens of Cholmondeley Castle in Cheshire are the backdrop for this large mosaic, completed in 2006. Made in memory of the late Marquess, the design takes, as a starting point, the family crest, which has interesting “beasts” & a wheat sheaf. Maggy re-drew these elements in a more lively style & wove the elements together to make the best effect with the pebbles. The decorative border has a ceramic image in the centre of each scroll, which was a way of showing some of the interests of the Marquess without compromising the overall design. There are regimental insignia, military drums, pheasants & foxes, pedigree bulls, & lots of horses.The garden is open to the public 3 days a week from Easter to September.
