He created this garden of three terraces which opened in 1837 to commemorate Queen Victoria's accession to the throne. The garden contains a large proportion of Thomas Bland's known works including animals, urns and figures, some in classical and others in modern dress. This unique garden is included on the Register of Historic Parks and Gardens.
