Designed by William Goldring in the early 1900s, the walled garden has been renovated over the past eight years with the aim of providing meaningful activities for adults with disabilities. Interested groups can be shown round the gardens by appointment.
The gardens at Fulham Palace are of historical significance, since in the 17th century Bishop Compton was among the first to import rare species from Virginia. The walled garden dates from the 18th century, but has a Tudor ornamental doorway facing the house. It is currently being restored, planting has begun and an aluminium glasshouse has replaced the derelict vinery.
Ardentinny Community Trust Ltd. bought the walled garden, which once belonged to Glenfinart House, from the Forestry Commission, and plan to establish a working garden producing affordable, organic fruit and vegetables alongside a more formal leisure garden, while creating opportunities for employment and training.
