Work Begins (2006)
The Finished Garden

The Sculpture Garden was created from a derelict space in 2006, it is now a thriving outdoor space and a haven for wildlife.
The garden was originally designed by Sue Hannett with railings by Richard Bett, Sculpture by Miles Halpin and floor mosaics by Coralie Turpin (in conjunction with pupils from Barton's three primary schools). The garden and promenade was lovingly cared for by Twink Addison until her retirement in 2021 and is now under the auspices of gardener and willow artist Alison Walling.
If you wish to know the names of any of the plants look at our Flickr albums here
From jugs, bowls, mugs, teapots and ornaments, there are some great ideas for gifts beautifully created by local artists.
