The magnificent 12th century Walled Gardens are built in the Gothic style of a cloistered ruin and are becoming a firm favourite with visitors. ‘Inspired’ is just one comment and everybody wants their picture taken here. There are two large open rooms and a courtyard divided by splendid window arches. It already has a medieval atmosphere and with the relentless weathering a covering of moss and lichens should complete the job. The boundary walls are still under construction using stone from tumbledown dykes and recycled blocks, and will eventually go all the way around the southern boundary from the copse to the road. It is also a dream to one day include stained glass into some of the window openings and we’ve had discussions with a couple of possible artisans. The way things are going this place will eventually become a World Heritage site, just as soon as we’ve finished building it.
