The Walled Garden Project
In early 2016, The Picton Castle Trust received initial support from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for their Walled Garden Project which aims to carry out essential restoration and repairs to this fascinating, rare and historically significant group of buildings within the castle grounds. £645,400 has been earmarked for the project and development funding of £100,000 has also been awarded to help the Picton Castle Trust to progress their plans to apply for the full grant at a later date. Of great importance will be the restoration of the walled garden walls and its wonderful gates, iron railings and gateposts which are topped with codestone pineapples.
The project also aims to bring the walled gardens back into sustainable use whilst retaining their character and setting. The outcome will be an accessible and secure part of our heritage which will provide activity, training and education space within the gardens with the addition of new interpretation and display areas and improved volunteer and visitor facilities and will provide enhanced opportunities for volunteer, visitor and educational engagement. In addition it is hoped to create outdoor planted areas exploring the world of plants and their uses to mankind.
