This garden takes a nostalgic look at the past when wildflowers were more common. The once-occupied forge is now in a state of neglect due to the blacksmith’s inability to work because he has motor neurone disease.

The bare areas of land had been left entirely to nature and are now populated by native wildflowers that have settled, naturalised and flourished on this untouched and abandoned land of the once-thriving establishment. The horse chestnut tree, stream and artefacts all serve as a reminder of a bygone age when the village blacksmith was an important artisan.
