The brief from this Grade II listed Quaker meeting house garden was for an enclosed, contemplative, tranquil space. The circular design means it can be used for outdoor meetings for worship. Plants were chosen for their historic associations with the Quaker plant hunters in the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries and Quaker plant nurseries and breeders.
This garden is registered with the Quiet Garden Movement and is open to the public.
This garden was a finalist in the community gardens category of the Society of Garden Designers’ Award scheme.
