Hidden Gardens in Town

Saturday 15 July 2017

On Monday 17th July  a self-guided tour was organised on ‘Hidden gardens in Cirencester‘ - a tour of the hidden gardens around the vicinity of Coxwell Street.

On a gorgeous balmy evening, members were able to wander along Coxwell Street, The Mead and Dollar Street to relish the delights of over a dozen properties whose owners had kindly opened their doors to share the idyllic settings and surroundings that very few can see.

The variety of gardens from small courtyard to classic English garden was stunning, The love and care that all the hosts had shown was inspiring. The lawns cut and tended, borders weeded, shrubs and plants all in symmetry with their surroundings. The garden designs varied from paved areas to classical Roman atmosphere to the iconic English cottage gardens. These gems also gave us the opportunity to look at the backs of the properties and the many architectural features and quirkiness of the variety of buildings.

The Society is most grateful to the owners of the gardens in question.
