Walled Garden - from dereliction to life

Walled Garden - from dereliction to life

To deliver a project such as the Walled Garden a plan was needed to ensure that it all fits together and the end result is not an unconnected series of planting and features but one that hangs together and is in keeping with the surroundings.

 

06.01.2014

To ensure the Walled Garden was successfully brought back from dereliction and given a new lease of life a master plan was created in 2012 (which has been revised in the latter end of 2013 as a result of new discoveries on site). The importance of this plan is that the final Garden will be a space that is flexible, sustainable and used and loved by the community - just like the Museum!

During the ground works, largely undertaken by volunteers as part of the Arts Council England funded project, we have discovered nasty items such as Japanese Knotweed and asbestos through to a sun lounger, an old pair of boots and generally a lot of rubbish!

As a consequence of it being derelict for so long a certain amount of peeling back has needed to take place first, however we can assure you this is all within the plan!

The image of the Garden was taken from the Museum's mansion roof.
