Our Quaker Garden

One of the hidden gems of Leighton Buzzard is the Friends Meeting House Garden, out of sight behind the Meeting House, which is itself tucked in behind houses on North Street. It is a burial ground, but also a quiet place to be still and find peace.

For some years it has been part of Leighton Linslade Open Garden Day. One year two hanging baskets created by St Leonards School were part of the display. Some new planting meant that it was recognised as an ‘improving’ garden.

We have occasional garden working parties to remove weeds and clear more ground for further planting. We are leaving some grassy areas uncut to create meadows for wildlife. There is also a spiral walk for meditation. The garden is open, we hope you will find it and enjoy it’s calm and pleasant atmosphere.
