Tucked away off the east end of the High St, this will fascinate anyone interested in Botantical History or gardening and features many specimens collected by 'Chinese' Wilson in a really tranquil setting; geat place to spend a reflective 30 minutes or so.

It's a lovely secluded garden just off the main road. We loved the story of this local man who went off to hunt for plants in Asia .... Don't miss this gem.
