walled garden 09

The walled kitchen garden at the Forty Hall Estate is arguably the best loved feature of the historic site, known to locals (who have visited the site since the Parker-Bowles family sold it to the local Council in the 1950’s) as the Rose Garden.

Despite vandalism, anti-social behaviour, sabotage, previous unsympathetic planting, the interment of human remains, unleashed dogs, grey squirrels, a skeleton staff and a free draining gravel soil, the garden continues to win Gold at the local ‘in bloom’ competitions!
