About The Garden
With the first plantings in 1988 the garden is well established boasting extensive herbaceous borders and mixed beds, amongst a charming network of waterways which drain the Treesmill marsh levels.
Meandering paths lead from one 'room' to the next, to the large natural pond, the formal enclosed garden, the woodland areas with under-planting, whilst comfortable corners provide the opportunity for enjoying the peace.
The long railway bank walk, and walk around the marsh, is ideal for dog walking
