The Bridge Garden

The Bridge Garden lies in the shelter of the railway bridge on Sutton Court Road, where the road curves to meet the railway line. The corner had become a weed- and litter-strewn eyesore.

Local residents cleared the weeds and rubbish, and then over the autumn and winter of 2018-2019 planted up the area. Donated trees – a silver birch, a fig, two plum trees – provided structure, and a selection of insect-friendly plants were sown.
