The Grand Etang Restoration Project

The Grand Etang Restoration Project demonstrates how the landscapes of the past can be revivified and rejuvenated for the future.

The Grand Etang, located immediately to the north-west of Boughton House is one of the earliest surviving features from the original gardens and designed landscape.  It was created in the early 18th century as a reflecting pool for the house and was also used for ice-skating in the winter.

Over the years, benign neglect of The Grand Etang saw it left as a sculptured outline of a normally dry basin. Read more about this exciting restoration project here. Or watch the timelapse video below of the restoration project:
