Inspiration

A few miles outside of the town and shrouded behind a wall of trees there exists the ruin of a mansion and a secret garden. What was once one of Oswestry's finest residences has now been retaken by mother nature, lost to time itself.
These sad ruins are all that remains of Llanforda Hall and the beautiful estate that it once stood on. Llanforda was the historical home of the Lloyd family, the Lloyds was for centuries one of Oswestry's most preeminent family.
The estate was also home to what was said to be one of the finest botanical gardens in England. The gardens were created in 1634 by Edward Lloyd with the help of the Botanist, Edward Morgan.
The gardens at Llanforda must have been stunning to behold. There was a walled garden filled with exotic plants and trees as well as a greenhouse where the fruit was grown, a real rarity in the 17th century.
On the estate itself, a small stream was dammed at various points to create large fish ponds which were stocked with the finest specimens of fish. The parkland is home to some of the most ancient and beautiful trees in the area.
The original mansion house dated from the early 16th century, this was demolished in 1780 by a descendant of Edward Lloyd by the name of Sir Watkin Williams Wynn. Sir Watkin had grand designs for his estate but unfortunately, the new mansion burnt down before it was ever completed. It wasn't until 1813 the mansion was totally rebuilt. The new building incorporated the ruins of the old house in its architecture. The estate survived into the 20th century before being sold off, the fate of many stately homes In that time. The uninhabited mansion was demolished In 1949.
Not much remains of the mansion and its gardens. A few phantom doorways and piles of bricks are all there is to be seen. The tall red walls that once encompassed the garden still do survive.
Also still in existence are a few of the fish ponds created by Edward Morgan all those years ago.

Safety

Never leave a burning candle unattended. Burn candles out of reach of children and pets. Always leave about 10cm between burning candles. Do not burn candles on or near anything that may catch fire. Only burn this candle on a level, heat-resistant surface. 

Never burn this candle for more than 4 hours at a time. Do not allow the flame to touch the glass. On the first burn, always burn for 3-4 hours to ensure an even melt pool. Ensure the wick is upright, above the wax, and central before the wax sets. Always trim the wick to 5mm before lighting to avoid smoking and damage to the glass. Glass may become hot during use. Extinguish when 5mm of wax remains and do not relight.
