Colclough Walled Garden is set in woodland of Tinturn Abbey estate and built on a sloping landscape to take best advantage of the sun throughout the day.
This Georgian Walled Garden had become overgrown and run down over the years from neglect. A local man, Alan Ryan, took it on as a project in 2011 with the aim of returning it back to its formal beauty and splendor. A group of volunteers came together to help and what is there today is the uncovering of a master garden. A 10’ wall of handcrafted bricks, made from local estuarine mud, shaped in wooden molds, air dried and finally fired in a Clant Kilm within the grounds, surrounds the garden.
The quiet, soothing atmosphere in these gardens are accentuated by the smells of flora and new growth, the trickling sound of the stream that runs through the middle, the wild bird sounds and the wind in the trees.
