Given a glimpse of the garden by a volunteer who worked there. It looked beautiful and tended with care by the volunteers.
Do check whether it is open in the present circumstances.

A haven of peace and tranquility in a lovely setting.

This is truly a real gem of a garden, it sits within the area which was once a garden designed by William Shenstone. The walled garden is lovingly cared for by a group of volunteers who have lovingly transformed it from a rubble strewn derelict site into a fabulous peaceful garden. You would never guess that junction 3 of the M5 is literally a few minutes away. The volunteers are a very dedicated but friendly crowd eager to distill their knowledge and story to groups and individuals. The restoration has been done without the ballyhoo and funding given to lesser gardens south of Watford, it is a must for gardening groups and keen gardeners alike. There is a decent pub The Royal Oak about a 10 minute walk away or The Black Horse just by the old abbey ruins.

A brilliant find....work in progress all done by volunteers. The restoration of the walled garden started late 2014 and the people who work there have taken it from a vandalised dumping ground to a place of tranquillity and interest. They have great plans of what they want to do with it and are passionate to drive the restoration forward.

An amazing find!

The Walled Garden is contained within Leasowes Park. Our community group had a talk about the history of the garden by Mick and Carole Freer. The garden is being carefully restored by a group of volunteers. Our group went there last week, we had a tour of the garden. The amount of work that has been done so far is amazing. The garden is open to the public and the aim is to have a coffee shop and visitor centre.The wildlife pond is well underway as well as the demollition of unsighlty potacabins left behind by the previous owners. The orchard is coming along and beehives have now been introduced.There are paths for you to follow and access is easy. If you have a spare couple of hours I recommend you go and find this hidden gem!

A hidden gem
Jul 2017 • Couples
This walled garden is still under reconstruction, as it relies on volunteer workers and donations, but the parts that have been completed are beautiful.

It is easy to walk to from the car park of Leasowes park, simply follow the red route for around 10 minutes.

The orchard is a lovely quite place to sit and reflect and listen to the bees, some of the trees are memorials others have been brought as gifts.

At the moment it is open Sunday, Monday and Tuesday Mornings 9.30 to 1

Admission is free, all they ask is for you to sign the visitors book, as their grant is worked out by visitor numbers
