The Quiet Garden at St Seraphim’s is a natural space which complements the spirituality of the Chapel and provides a calming and natural reflective space for use by pilgrims, visitors and the local community.
It is reflective of a pilgrimage journey, leading the visitor from a rose covered pergola, past raised flower beds to a sedum Celtic cross and finally a look out hut at the top of a rise with views across the village.
The garden became overgrown once the station closed in 1964, having been the place where the railway workers grew their fruit and vegetables during the quite moments of the station daily round. In 2011 the Community payback started work on the planning of the garden, and it became their flagship project over the next few years.
In 2015 the garden was opened to the public, and today welcomes visitors.
There are benches and a picnic table, with a volunteer cabin providing a toilet and kitchen area.
A donation is welcomed to cover costs when used by groups.
No fee just donations.
