Warwick Meeting has a beautiful garden which is open to the public in the daytime for contemplation and play. In the past part of it was a burial ground for Friends, and there are two gravestones set in the paving by the French windows which remain.
After some active fundraising and generous donations, we are currently making some changes so that it is more wildlife friendly and accessible. A new wide path has been built which is wheelchair friendly. Wildflowers, native bulbs and trees, and flowering shrubs are being planted. An arbour has been added, as well as a pergola to provide shade. For the children we have built a playhouse and are establishing a raised bed for them to grow plants of their choice.
We hope that you can visit if you are walking through Warwick and that you enjoy the peaceful surroundings.
Our new garden gate onto the High Street is now installed and we are delighted with the result.
Warwick Quakers commissioned the work from Master Blacksmith Michelle J Parker, who designed and made this individual piece of art for us. We are so pleased that Michelle, who is the first woman blacksmith to have been appointed as a Liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Blacksmiths, was willing to work with us to design this rather special entrance to our accessible Quaker garden.
