Walled Garden - When will it be finished?

Walled Garden - When will it be finished?

We are often asked when will the Walled Garden project be finished.  Finished probably isn't quite the right word.  Being an outdoor space it will forever be changing both seasonally and longer term as it matures - but this is part of the beauty of the Walled Garden.

From day one, when the project was conceived, the project team were under no illusions, being an outdoor space the Walled Garden will never reach a 'finished point' when no more needs doing.

We opted very early on not to plant out the Garden until the construction works were complete.  In addition the project with Stroud Valleys Project in the south-west corner of the Garden has provided some useful pointers going forward. Even this area requires the final landscaping and planting.

In all likelihood, the Garden will remain designated a construction site (with all the requirements this brings) for sometime, at least until the entrance way is completed.  We and the Museum Friends continue to fundraise and are getting ever closer to the target. Subject to funding current estimates put this construction in mid 2015.

As a visitor who attended one of our behind the scenes tours wisely asked 'when will the public be able to access the Garden'...now that's a better question.  Until general access is possible we hope to continue events like the behind the scenes tours so people can see the Garden evolve in these early days of its new life.

The photograph is taken from inside the Pavilion looking back to the Museum and the eventual site of the entrance way.
