This romantic walled garden, situated at the River Dawn, was first established in 1994 and evolved over the years. Seven acres of a former woollen mill have been changed into paradise by Dutch artists Wout Muller and Clary Mastenbroek.
Stones from former buildings have been recycled into walls, raised borders, obelisks and magic standing stones. From May 2003 the small gallery has been extended as a museum, for contemporary figurative art.
