Acer Palmatum, Endsleigh, Milton Abbot, Devon painting

Acer Palmatum

Endsleigh, Milton Abbot, Devon

Sold  Oil painting by David William Young.

This magnificent old Acer can be found on the former Duke of Bedford estate at Endsleigh in the Tamar valley near the Devon village of Milton Abbot. Endsleigh was the  Devon retreat of a succession of Bedford's and the house (or cottage) was built in the ‘rustic’ style that was fashionable at the time among the big landowners. The grounds where laid out in a similar  natural rustic fashion with lots of sunken paths, water features and follies beneath a canopy of new and exotic species trees and shrubs that were being discovered and returned to England by adventurous plant collectors.

These have now matured over the last century and a half and one very fine example of these plants is this tremendous Acer that is huge and when in its autumn glory shrouds the visitor walking beneath in glow of red light
