I first visited the gardens in the 1960's with my grandmother and I have always referred to them as Granny's secret gardens. They were magical with long fishponds so full of goldfish and water lilies. I also seem to remember that the chalet was open and I could just clamber all over it. It was one of my favourite places to go and holds many memories. I took my own children there in the 1980 s and it had sort of lost its charm once the ponds were turned into flower beds.
