Bridge End Garden was created in 1840 by Francis Gibson, a local Quaker businessman, who also built the Fry Art Gallery. Gibson designed the Garden as a series of interlocking ‘rooms’, each with its own unique character, including a sunken Dutch garden, a walled garden and a hedge maze. An ambitious restoration project took place between 2003 and 2008 and it is now Grade II* Registered. Bridge End Garden is a popular spot for visitors and locals alike. It is the perfect place for a summer picnic or to provide a quiet escape from modern life.
