The Old Toilet Garden
The Old Toilet Garden, as its name implies, is located on the site of a now-demolished public convenience on the A30. Because the ground is ashphalt on concrete the planting is in tubs and planters (although a buddleia does seem to have broken through of its own accord…)
A donor has offered to sponsor the plot to keep it planted through the seasons with bee-friendly plants. The Gryphon School pupils duly obliged and it is now in full bloom.
This little garden is now an amenity in quite a different sense from its original purpose!
This website is honoured to have twice won the coveted Barry Cruse Trophy for 'Best Website' in the South West in Bloom regional competition.
We were awarded the trophy in 2010 and 2013.
