On Wednesday 25th May the Quiet Garden will be open to all visitors from 10.30am to 12.30pm.
There is no charge, just enjoy the tranquility of the space.
Come and enjoy the peaceful stillness of the Quaker garden. Sit and contemplate the flowers and trees. Walk slowly and meditatively using the spiral walkway. Read in a secluded corner.
Friends will be around if you wish to talk, or have a cup of tea.
The Friends Meeting House dates from 1787 and is the local Quaker place of worship.
The garden is a walled burial ground, with gravestones dating from 1820s, which now form a path around a central grassed area. In the middle is a small spiral meditation walkway. There are borders with mature trees, some areas with flowers others left as a natural habitat for wildlife. This secluded area is now part of the Quiet Garden Movement.
We will also be taking part in the Open Garden Day on 17th July (12-5 in the afternoon).
