‘Sculptures by the Lake’ in Dorset, UK

A wonderful gem is hidden in the Dorset countryside near Dorchester in the UK. It is a sculpture park with nice cafe and also a venue for special events. This 26-acre park was created by Simon Gudgeon in 2007. He was born in 1958, a well-known contemporary British sculptor specializing in large bronze sculptures, who was formally educated in law but became a sculptor at age 40. He has carefully curated the park with sculptures and landscaping making it an oasis for all visitors. It is a combination of landscaping, art, flowers, and more.

About Online Flower Garden & Dino

Dino
I am a flower enthusiast and a gardener at heart. Ever since childhood I loved reading about plants and started gardening at an early age. First by helping my father in the garden and later managing a large garden myself in my teen years. I planted and cared for a large number of plants, flowers, and trees both outdoors and in a greenhouse. To this day I enjoy visiting gardens and parks and learning about new and old specimens and varieties of plants.
