Keld Well-being Garden

Created from a piece of waste ground near the Chapel and with help from the BIG Lottery Fund, the well-being garden is now entering its third growing season.  The garden is very natural and not a formal garden in the sense of herbaceous borders, trellises and baskets.  The garden celebrates the wild flowers of Keld and is at its best in June and July when the Ox-Eye Daisies are in flower.

The theme of the garden as the name suggests is 'well being'.  It is a place to sit and contemplate and enjoy the splendid views towards Kisdon Hill.  Entry to the garden is via  the Chapel Yard.  Look closely at the mosses and lichens that cover the dry stone walls, these are often overlooked as we search for more showy flowers but have their own beauty and interest.  Throughout spring and summer the garden is also a great place to watch the House Martins as they swoop and dive in search of insects.
