In 1958 Chadwick moved to Lypiatt Park, a large gothic-style house near Stroud. He worked from a studio in a renovated barn in the grounds and used the house, and later the park's garden, as an environment in which to showcase his work. Chadwick is shown here in the grounds where he was buried after his death in 2003.
