The Victorian Kitchen Garden

The Kitchen Garden faces south-east on a plot of about a quarter of an acre within its original limestone walls. It was built in about 1875 and there are traces of the original heating pipes which ran along the length of the rear wall, and which were powered by a boiler next to the potting shed. None of the original glasshouses remained when we took over, but there was a small, unheated, greenhouse, which we have since doubled in size. About one third of the kitchen garden is devoted to fruit for which we have built a rather over the top Victorian style cage and some pretty strawberry houses. There is a large asparagus bed. The remainder of the garden is devoted to seasonal vegetables and herbs. Next to the kitchen garden is a potting shed which we re-constructed around two stained glass windows which came out of a redundant church- the windows were removed in 2010 to form the focal point for a show garden in the Gardening World Cup, held in Nagasaki.
