The Lord's Garden, Ruthin
The Lord's Garden, Ruthin
The gardens at Nantclwyd y Dre have undergone a transformation over the last four years from a wild overgrown orchard to reinstating some of their original features. The garden is believed to have originated as a medieval castle garden as early as 1282 for growing fruit, vegetables and medicinal and strewing herbs for Ruthin Castle. This photograph was taken on the occasion of presentation of the Quayle Award to the garden. Each year, the Ruthin and District Civic Association presents a commemorative plaque (the Quayle Award) to the owners of a building within the town or surrounding area which has improved and enriched the town or village environment aesthetically by a good new design or through sensitive restoration. Aimed primarily at recognising and encouraging improvements to the quality of the built environment but there may be occasions when some landscaping can be considered, because it had made possible a greater appreciation of the quality of a nearby building or group of buildings.
