Restoration of the Japanese Garden
This project is led by Ann Beeby and Liz Chidlow.
The project is supported by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Bulletin: Main Contractors Now Onsite
The family firm of TWS Construction UK Ltd from Thirsk has been awarded the contract by Harrogate Borough Council to work on the restoration of the Japanese Garden.
The site is now fenced off and will remain so until the contractors have left the site as there is large machinery in use.
The contractors commenced work on April 24
th, and are making excellent progress despite the muddy conditions.

General Information

The final plan has a few alterations; the stepping stone path was considered unsuitable for a public space and has been replaced by footpath gravel. This path is not suitable for wheelchairs or pushchairs so there is now a turning area across the stream from the lower flat bridge to enable wheelchairs and large push chairs to access a different viewpoint.
