What a fantastic experience this garden and gallery is.....it's far from a museum as this was where Barbara worked, lived and sadly died in a fire in her studio. There are wonderful photographs of her life and the many famous buildings where her commissioned pieces adorn the exterior. Some of her personal belongings are also in the gallery. But it's the gardens and her studio that bring this place to life. There are numerous sculptures placed around her sheltered and tree dappled garden with benches to sit and enjoy their beauty. Looking into Barbara's studio, where her tools and overalls are still lying, has a feel of her imminent return. It was fascinating to see where she produced her magnificent works of art and very poignant to think a fire here took her life. If you can time your visit to coincide with a guided tour then take the opportunity to do this.
