Sixteen individual hedged Victorian gardens on the western edge of Warwick overlooking the racecourse. Several restored brick built summerhouses. Planted with vegetables, fruit and flowers. Large glasshouse and visitor centre.
The site was divided up and sold as 32 separate plots in 1845. Tradesmen from Warwick bought or rented the gardens to get away from the cramped living conditions in the town. They grew fruit, vegetables and flowers and kept pigs and poultry. They built summerhouses for shelter and storage. In the early 20th century some of the gardens on the edges of the site were sold off for housing but 16 remain and were restored in 2006 with Heritage Lottery funding.
