A house called the Rookery was here on this site with a spa, but when the spa declined in popularity the Rookery's formal gardens and spa were bought and turned into a public garden. It was the local people, who bought the land for £3,000, that saved this astonishing place. A three-acre garden was built, including a water garden, formal gardens, a stunning white garden, herbaceous borders, an English garden, fantastic trees, ponds, and much more. Let me take you on a walk around this tiered and secret garden.

|What a beautiful garden, Neil, and you did a splended job reviewing it for us (even if you had to tote the camera & Sarah!) Hey, I don't blame her for stopping for rests & refreshments; looks like alot of walking! I don't know which area I liked best--- the Blue Cedars; the Cardoon flower; the pretty pond; the White Garden (so peaceful); or those wonderful walkways! That plant, the White Cornus--- is it an Evergreen shrub, or does it also get white blooms?--- I like it just for its white-edged leaves! Can't wait for Part 2, from you, our special tour guide! Thanks, Neil!!
