The stunning 18th century Walled Garden crowns Norton Priory's 47 acre site. Teeming with wildlife, meadows and managed woodland there are regular events exploring this haven for wildlife. At the museum and priory ruins there is also plenty to see from the medieval herb garden and labernum arch to the stream glades and rock garden.
The two and a half acre Walled Garden has been recreated as a typical Georgian garden. Today there is an orchard, a trained fruit garden, a vegetable garden, various ornamental borders and the beautiful Rose Walk.
The Walled Garden is also the location of a number of Norton Priory’s ‘hidden gems’, including the Ha Ha Wall, the Ice House and the Wildflower Meadow. The National Collection of Tree Quince (Cydonia Oblonga) also has its home here. These are dotted around the garden and the site and include 24 different varieties.
