Walled Garden - Bad at keeping secrets!

Walled Garden - Bad at keeping secrets!

Behind those gates, the Walled Garden continues to grow and mature before opening. 



We're not great at keeping secrets! Although you can't blame us, after all, our mission is to share! 

We are delighted to offer a sneak preview of the 'Walled Garden so far' to those visiting during the launch weekend of Bob Davison's Exhibition, 'Borders'.

The Garden isn't yet finished! We still have some ground works to complete and with our Museum Friends are seeking funding for the Pergola.  This structure is the last item from the original master plan, and will go over the west end path, upon which we intend to grow fruit trees to create a 'fruit arch'.

In addition to this, with the support of a few volunteers, the planting out of the Garden borders has been taking place.  As well as our volunteers, we are grateful to the creative vision of local artist-gardener Cleo Mussi, who has worked with us to create a striking planting plan which will eventually fill the garden with swathes of glorious colour. We've kept the overall plan a little under wraps.  Like any natural space it will take a while to mature but we hope you like the appearance once you step through the doors into the Garden. 

If you'd like to support the Museum's Walled Garden project by donating a plant we've created a 'wishlist' to help.  More details can be found here. We ask that these are brought along on during the sneak preview.

More information on the sneak preview can be found here. It is for one weekend only, 2nd and 3rd July between 2-4pm.

We are very excited about the Project and are very grateful for all the support it has received over the last few years.  We are now looking forward to sharing this wonderful new learning space with everyone who visits.

The photograph shows one of our young local variety fruit trees, which form the orchard, in blossom.
