Mick The top garden is only open on a Thursday,and when available produce is on sale to the public. Volunteers do the work of making the sort of garden that was there originally.

All I can see is wrought iron fencing no brickwork at all!

I miss the splendour of the plantation and Haigh Hall. I last visited about 25 years ago , just before I moved away.

Remember walking down here but it was raining hard so we sheltered under the trees, then we walked on when it stopped. We had a good laugh. Can't remember when it was.
