56 Barrydale Avenue NG9 1GN

Open on Saturday only

New to the Trail this year, a small, 1930s split-level gardener’s garden with wild, native and cultivated plants designed with wildlife at the heart of everything. Pleached beech trees stand in naturalistic herbaceous borders edged with Buxus, all reined-in by small gravel paths.

(You’ll also be very welcome to view the wild nature area at the end of Barrydale Avenue, which has been ‘gardened’ for wildlife by owners of No:56  since 2014—with fruit trees, wildflower meadow, and large ‘Bug Squat’.)
