It is less than a decade ago that we started to restore Parke’s Walled Garden – here are a few photographs showing some of that work.
The walls are being ‘repainted’ with lime wash – the garden is still a jungle and the capping wall tins have yet to be replaced
Repairing the main wall
An old photo from the early 1900s – note the glass house and the box hedges around the beds
Major Hole’s gardener
This pit outside the Walled Garden used to house the boiler for the glass house – you can still see some of the pipework
It is good to see the Walled Garden now back in use and we hope that as the years go by and more money becomes available we will be able to restore some of the other older features that were once in the garden.
And finally the sunset over the Walled Garden yesterday evening
