The Cancer Research UK Legacy Garden

Show Gardens
The Cancer Research UK Legacy Garden tells the story of how a gift in your Will is a pledge that helps fund vital research; research to save the ones we love, research in memory of those we’ve lost and research that will beat cancer for future generations.

The garden celebrates the hope and optimism brought about by gifts in Wills, and encourages reflection, conversation, and connection in this tranquil woodland.
With varying levels, the garden is mostly hidden from the outside. Discovery happens when you step inside – stream inlets lead to a central body of water with an isolated jetty – a metaphor for the fear and loneliness cancer can bring – but facing the ‘Pledge Pavilion’ symbolises hope and though the journey is difficult, you are not alone.

Thanks to the following companies for their support: Breedon Aggregates, Welsh Slate, CED Stone, Bernhards Nurseries, Hortus Loci, and Alken Engineering.
