Centre for Reflection

This garden makes connections between the “Outer landscape” and our “Inner journey” and offers a sense of peace and stillness for those who sit and reflect on away days or led Quiet Days. The design of the garden which has no grass creates visual links between the outer landscape of stones, flowing water, circular seat round a tree and Mediterranean planting joined to a formally shaped herb garden with a summer house. On the wall by the pool is a plaque with a quotation from Isaiah 58 “You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail“.
