The Accessible Garden...
The design of The Accessible Garden on the theme of an ancient local iron age site was a gift to the Studio from Kevin McCloud and the construction was by the Green Farm work force!

Funding was acquired from The Somerset Aggregate Levy Sustainability Fund to plant the thirteen Trees of the Celtic Calendar, and the banks of indigenous wild flowers.
The local limestone dust to cover the banks was supplied by Coleman's Quarry and the material for the accessible paths  came from Wainwrights Quarry, and were laid with the help of funding from the Country Landowners Assosiation.The huge stones for the Gorge were kindly gifted by David Yeoman from Torr Woks.The Garden has a Pond, an Ampitheatre and a Human Sundial, designed and installed by David Brown. The maintaince of this unique garden is overseen by Richard Roch of Combe Garden Maintenance.
