The hidden hedged gardens at Hill Close were used by Victorians living above their businesses to escape from the crowded town. Their owners went there after work and on Sundays to tend their plots or just to relax. The sixteen gardens, including several attractive summerhouses, have been restored to their Victorian splendour. Teas, gifts and plants are available in the modern Visitor Centre
