Fill the Hole!!

The 'hole' is in the Victorian Walled Garden at Brympton House; a Grade 1 listed gem that is open and accessible to all and administered by an educational charity; its a bit like Downton Abbey but dating from 1350 instead of 1850! The aim is to fill the hole in the kitchen garden - which covers the medieval well and spans 10 metres by 5 metres We would like to infill the space to make the walled garden accesible to the public on open days but incorporate sprays of water that children and adullts can run through!

Unfortunately, this project was not successful

Help us to Fill the Hole!

The Hole in question is at the centre of the Victorian Walled Garden on the historic grade 1 listed Brympton d'Evercy estate. The estate - which is administered by a charitable trust - is open to the public on Tuesdays between May 1st and September 31st. The plan for the 2014 season is to open the Victorian Walled garden as part of the guided house and garden tours - but to do so we need to fill a massive hole which sits in the centre of the present garden and spans a medieval well.

As the hole is 10 foot deep and 15 feet wide this is quite an undertaking! Most of the work will be done by our army of dedicated volunteers but we need to raise £2500 to install a water feature in the space so that the holes historical link as a watering hole can be preserved.

The plan is to fill the hole and pave it over with  some beautiful medieval hamstone found on the estate which are going to be  predrilled to incorporate jets of water that can be set to gently spray our visitors if we have - as we are hoping! - a really hot, high visitor numbers summer!!

So please help us to achieve our target and make the Victorian Walled garden at Brympton House open and accessible to all - with a dash of water fun - in 2014!!
