NANTWICH WALLED GARDEN - 10

A 'rival' knot garden that is on show now

July 2019

 

 

 

THE knot garden pictured here is not, of course, something that would draw in crowds of people, but it is all we have for the moment while someone in Cheshire East Council planning department makes up their mind about the application to build on the potential tourist attraction land (see Nantwich Walled Garden - 1).

 

   It is, in fact, in the front garden of one of a row of houses that I noticed when I walked past it. I won't say just where to avoid a rush of people wishing to take a photograph to the possible annoyance of the resident.

 

   With the "real" walled garden-to-be still in limbo awaiting the planning decision, the Nantwich Walled Garden Society members must be admired in that they are still determined to acquire the garden site and convert it.

 

   I think I will nominate the group as a whole to win one of the Salt of the Earth Awards given annually by Nantwich Town Council to individuals or groups who do good works for the community. They deserve something in return for their persistence.
