Gloriously sited, but on a very challenging site, this large sloping garden has been terraced on several levels. Surrounded by trees with the hills beyond, rhododendrons and roses thrive here.
Some of the paths are uneven as they navigate the steep slope leading down to a woodland and with a walk through a woodland glade.
Gardens 19 and 20, are situated on the sharp bends of Strines Road where there is virtually no parking. However, the towpath of the Peak Forest Canal is just across the road and accessible via a short footpath. A Linking walks guide is available explaining the scenic route along the canal towpath from Marple centre via the Girlguiding headquarters on Brickbridge Road.
