What a difference already!
It is early days of clearance work at Burnby Gardens, for the HLF funded rock garden restoration project , and local contractors Landmark have made a running start. A lot of the large trees have disappeared in the first couple of days, already transforming the gloomy, shady space into a bright and open landscape, where you can see the rocks!
These 'before' and 'during' shots speak for themselves (you can see the distinctive large rock, to the right of the contractor in the second photo, is in both pictures). Look out for the 'after' photos (we might update you before then - the 'finished' product is still a year or so away!)
