A Secret Garden
Apparently it seems that in 1856, a prosperous upholsterer and cabinet maker living in Norwich, took a long lease on an industrial site just outside the old City walls. His name was Henry Trevor and he went on to spend considerable sums of money and much effort transforming a chalk quarry into a rather lovely garden.
After the second world war the garden became virtually abandoned, however the majority of the structure survived and since then it’s been gradually restored by the The Plantation Garden Preservation Trust.
So if you’re in Norwich and have an hour or two to spare wander along, you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
