Apothecary Garden at Sheffield Manor Lodge in full flower

The Tudor Grounds

Here perennial meadows create meandering pathways within the ruins with shots of annual colour popping throughout. 

You'll also find more formal areas including the apothecary garden where scents of medicinal and culinary herbs that were well known in Tudor times fill the air. There's also the lavender labyrinth, a great to spot to literally loose yourself in. The planting is inspired by Tudor gardens and is bordered by pleached pear, fig and walnut trees. Roses, iris, day lilies form the edging beds.

Colliery Hill

The planting that frames our green roofed discovery centre is filled with the strong Tudor colours of gold, crimson and purple. You’ll also find long flowering perennial meadows changing colour and form throughout the year. 

Visit the viewpoint to enjoy a panorama across Sheffield and the Lower Don Valley and also see how an urban heathland is developing slowly but beautifully on this historic mine site.

The Arena

Our perennial meadows will gradually be taking centre stage with all of our mixes on display around our arena. You can enjoy walks around this open green space to the Rhubarb Shed Cafe or choose to loop back to the Discovery Centre via our pocket Woodland. Here the path is flanked either side with meadows and further up emerges through our rain garden.
