Japanese Water Gardens

Japanese water gardens

Last week we talked about the fantastic Japanese Water Gardens that used to be part of the Warren House estate and how if you had a Sunday afternoon free you could pop down for a rare visit. Well, myself, Vera and a couple of friends did just that!

The gardens were beautiful and just turning through the different shades of oranges and reds, there was also the surprise of a large ‘Japanese style’ building that housed several flats. Within the gardens was the traditional red and gold bridge over the pond with a tiny little pagoda at the bottom of the garden. Paths wound their way around through arched tree alleyways and over running streams into quiet glades. We explored, marvelled and contemplated the afternoon away. Magic!

If you look closely you may just spot the extremely rare ‘Golden crested web designer’ in amongst the foliage…
