2019 – Welcome to Yorkshire Garden

Virtual People's Choice

The Welcome to Yorkshire Garden is inspired by the county‘s proud history of industry, manufacturing and innovation, as well as its stunning natural environment.
Reminiscent of the urban regeneration that has taken place along many of Yorkshire’s canals, the garden consists of a towpath running next to a perennial meadow that borders a pair of narrow canal lock gates and a lock keeper’s lodge with private garden and vegetable patch.
This slice of Yorkshire focuses on the beauty of the natural and the cultivated. It celebrates the area’s industrial heritage and champions the rich diversity of native flora alongside cultivated varieties.
The atmospheric garden strikes a balance between the industrial and the beautiful, demonstrating that a working lock can also be a place of tranquillity and charm.
The garden evokes the essence of Yorkshire aiming to inspire those who see it to pay a visit to the county to experience its beauty first hand.
