Month: May 2021

May, re-opening to the public

With having resumed our face to face services at the walled garden in the last month or so, we have been delighted to have welcomed back our members and volunteers. Work started straight away on propagation as well as starting to tidy up the garden after the winter and the time we were closed during the lockdown. With restrictions across the country relaxing more and more, the decision was made to reopen the garden to the public in late May, with Sunday openings starting on May 16th and running through the summer. 

Work has been focused on getting the garden tidy and neat for this, and we have spent the last week working on the borders outside the front of the garden, which we have not tended as much over the last year. With these borders shaping up nicely thanks to everyones hard work the entrance to the garden at the Masters gate is looking fresher and welcoming to our visitors. We hope that everyone who comes along and has a look at what’s Beyond the Wall, enjoys the fruits of our hard work.

The garden is free to visit (Sundays in summer, Midday-3pm). Parking is at the Thornham Walks carpark near the Forge Cafe.
