The garden at Powis has survived the 18th reaction against the formality of earlier garden design and thus Powis is one of the few places in Britain where a true baroque garden may still be fully appreciated, the baroque being a period of artistic style that used exaggerated motion and clear, easily interpreted detail to produce drama, tension, exuberance and grandeur. And very definitely not a lot of people know that!!!
