Photographer's Note

'Symmetry'? Well almost, the Pavilion at the far end just spoils the symmetrical composition.

This is Bridge End Garden in Saffron Walden.
It was created in about 1840 by Francis Gibson, a Quaker, prominent citizen and benefactor of the town.

His garden was a development of a smaller existing garden thought to be created by his father.

The Garden is unusual in that it was never attached to or designed around a dwelling.

The Garden is still owned by the Fry family who, through marriage, inherited the Garden in the latter part of the 19th century. From the early 20th century it has been leased to the local borough and district councils, and most recently in 2010 to Saffron Walden Town Council.

The garden that you see today has been recreated to resemble the original Victorian garden.

Here, the Dutch Garden is a sunken garden, and at its best viewed from an iron viewing platform, which I did.

The Pavilion, a listed building provides a seat and shelter.

Two more views in the w/s.

Thanks for looking.
