THORNHAM WALLED GARDEN
Beyond the Wall is a charitable project which offers a progressive day service to clients with additional needs/disabilities.
Follow the surfaced path from the main carpark or drive directly to the Walled Garden following the map on the contacts page. The project has brought the garden back from many years of neglect. The Victorian greenhouses have been renovated with Heritage Lottery funding and we are able to now open our gardens to the public Monday to Wednesday in the winter months and Monday to Friday in the summer between 10am and 2.30pm. The hard work of our clients, staff and volunteers can be admired, and this also provides a work experience opportunity for our clients, and an opportunity to interact with members of the public. As well as the beautiful flowers we also grow produce which we both sell and use to make jams, chutneys and lavender products.
We also have a tea room on site which provides a further opportunity for our clients to gain real work skills.
Look out for our four annual fund-raising events.
