The gardens at Bakers Arms
The garden at Bakers Arms is some 250m long with the River threading through it. Total area is a little over 2 acres. It is mostly wooded, but only because there ar some specimen trees but also because there has been little serious garden maintenance for the past 20 years, so trees that were hedged have grown. The garden is divided into several rooms. At the north end is what we think was once a quarry with tall trees making something of a park-like area. South of this is a more open area where apple trees grow. Both these area a have a spring in, though little has been done with these.
Approach to the garden is through the old skittle alley, now roofless, or via a tunnel-like path to the side of the skittle alley.
The gardens are a pleasant place to walk your dog or to take a picnic, or just to sit. We shall be working on them for many years to restore some of their past glory.
