The pergola, a spectacular feature of West Dean Gardens, Chichester, whatever the season.
It's the 1911 masterwork of garden designer Harold Peto, is 300ft long and uses 62 classical columns as the central theme, with an unusual handsome gazebo at one end, and a reflecting pool in the middle.
It's a massive stone and timber-covered walkway, and was both restored and replanted after the 1987 storm when a new border was added as part of a plan to “root the structure into the surrounding garden” and is host to many varieties of magnolia, clematis, rose and honeysuckle, like a perfumed promenade.
