The Plantation Garden is a Grade II English Heritage registered garden close to Norwich City centre, next to the Catholic Cathedral.

The Garden comprises nearly 3 acres and its features include a Gothic fountain, flower beds, lawns, an Italianate terrace, ‘Medieval’ wall, summer-house, woodland walkways and a rustic bridge. It is an idiosyncratic garden, a haven of peace and tranquillity and a glimpse into a bygone age.



“Thatching of the Summerhouse has been completed by A & R Thatchers, based in Norwich and specialising in using all local materials. The roof has Hickling reed and the ridge is of sedge and wheat straw. The volunteers will paint inside and out, and do any timber repairs.  It is worth noting how sad it looked before this expenditure and how good it is now, and it should last many years.”


“Alex and Richard Kelly are making good progress on the summerhouse roof. Note the extra work in carrying all materials up the Italian Terrace and that the roof will be of Norfolk reeds all from Hickling Broad.”


“Today A & R Kelly stated to replace the thatch on our summerhouse roof.

With new thatch and a repaint this important feature of the Garden will look good again”
