I recall this being a council garden centre in 1980s when I was a child but its since become overgrown, although there was some activity in the buildings at the back, suggesting something is happening.

  1. when I was young it was a fully functioning ‘gardens’ with resident family in the now demolished house. I used to go from my Grandmother’s at the Alms Houses to buy her eggs and vegetables.

  2. There used to be a riding school there, in the 1970s, the owners lived in the house, which leaked and was falling to bits even then. Used to go there every Saturday. This posted by Christine Clark X
