* 31 *

For those of you who queried as to whether or not I went through the door on my last post the answer is yes , how could I not.


I think all these holes in the walls were for some type of oven, please correct me if I'm wrong as I'm really just guessing.


There were dozens of these tubs stacked on top of one another with all types of different plants in them.


Lots of small fruit trees and conifers.


If I remember correctly there were six different beds separated by paths with a small circle in the middle. One of the beds was full of currant bushes , I only know this as there was an old tag tied to one of them .



To be honest I kind of rushed around just in case we weren't meant to be in there but I do hope they keep this open as I really need to go back and investigate further and I would love to see what is actually in here.
Watch this space ....

How fascinating! A secret garden?!!! I hope you do go back and find out more about it. Maybe it was a private garden at one time?

I think I would have been racing through too ... worried I'd get locked in like in some sci-fi movie! I can't wait to see if you have any more adventures in there!

Oooh, don't you love having a fun little adventure like that? I hope you're able to get back in there again!

Wooo.... lucky you didn't get caught! ;) It looks very interesting. Would be interesting to know exactly what the holes are in the walls...

Such beautiful pictures - it still looks cold, but you can just feel Spring around the corner.

Have a lovely weekend,

I wonder if the ovens were a heating system for greenhouses that may have been there in the past? Complete guess so could be wildly wrong! Juliex

Wow, this looks really cool. It would be great to be able to wander around here in the different seasons to see how it changed :) Like your own secret garden :)
