Reasons for trip

This small garden tucked away behind the lovely C14th timber frame “Lord Leycester Hospital”: has been beautifully restored in the 1990s by a previous master’s wife. She was a garden historian and used records of the plot dating back to the C17th.

The garden is reached down a narrow passageway and past the Millenium Knot Garden with its statue of the Bear with a Ragged Staff.

The garden is divided up by low trimmed hedges, forming smaller gardens within the main gardens. The sandstone urn is 2000 years old and forms a feature in the garden. At the other end of the path is a thatched gazebo.

The garden is open from Easter to the end of September, except Mondays from 10-4. Entry just to the garden is £2 and all the money goes towards the upkeep of the gardens and the Lord Leycester hospital. In some ways there isn’t a lot to see compared with other gardens in Warwick, like “Mill Garden”: and “Hill Close Gardens,”: but it is a pleasant place to just sit and relax. If you want a drink, there is the Brethren’s Kitchen.

There are more pictures “here.”:
