Broadwalk

The 220m long avenue which divides the Garden is known as the Broadwalk

One of the longest herbaceous borders in Britain, from spring to winter, this Garden ‘spine’ is a blaze of colour.

It begins at the Gatehouse, passes a water sculpture called Scaladaqua Tonda, then Circle of Decision, a fountain shaped like the cross section of an ammonite, and leads up to a beautiful pond that we call the Mirror Pool.  This feeds water down into The Rill, a meandering stream that flows down the Broadwalk with a shape and course that is inspired Carmarthenshire’s Towy Valley river.

Along the east side of the Broadwalk you will also come across the Rock of Ages, a geological display spanning 300 million years of Welsh history.
