Dunster's Secret Garden

This sheltered walled garden is located at the back of St George's Church in Dunster.  It can be accessed through a gate in the wall on Priory Green just opposite the dovecote.  It is a memorial garden and is dedicated to the men of Dunster who gave their lives in two World Wars.

The garden is free to visit and has a number of seats.  It is a beautiful and tranquil place to sit and just "be" for a while.  I think most visitors to Dunster are unaware of its existence, as I have been there on several occasions but it has never been busy.

Simon Jenkins, author of England's Thousand Best Churches, said this about the garden: "Surely the most delightful church garden in England."
