The Welcome to Yorkshire Garden

Designed by Mark Gregory

Designed by Mark Gregory


Reminiscent of the urban regeneration that has taken place along many of Yorkshire’s canals, the garden consists of a towpath running next to a perennial meadow that borders a pair of narrow canal lock gates and a lock keeper’s lodge with private garden and vegetable patch.

The garden embodies the charm of the Narrow Canal System of West Yorkshire
Cultivated varieties of plants exist next to native cousins adding a natural flow to the planting.
Specifically the garden is inspired by the Huddersfield to Marsden section of the Narrow Canal System, which was once an arterial route between Manchester and West Yorkshire
After regeneration this area is now a rich bio-diverse landscape.
