Allesley Park walled garden
Allesley Park walled garden
Looking north-east from near the centre of the walled garden. Much of it is lawn dotted with 2 or 3 conifers, but the north-western corner has been worked on to restore the appearance of a kitchen garden.

The garden was created about 200 years ago to provide fruit and vegetables for Allesley Hall and at one time produced exotic fruits within its 1.4 acres. It was converted to an ornamental garden in the 20th century before being neglected but is now being restored as a kitchen garden by a group of volunteers.
Allesley Park, Coventry
The park has its origins as a medieval deer park, part of which became the landscaped grounds around Allesley Hall mansion which dated from around 1700. The mansion was replaced c. 1910 with the present Allesley Hall building and it and the surrounding lands were gifted to the people of Coventry in the 1960s. Part of the land was built on to form the Allesley Park estate and the slopes between the hall and Allesley village became a public park.
