Helmsley Walled Garden
Built in 1759, Helmsley Walled Garden sits beneath the imposing ruins of Helmsley Castle. After World War One and the garden’s purpose as a provider of food for the family ceased. Left to dereliction it slumbered until 1994 when a local practice nurse saw its potential. She wanted it to be a beautiful garden to visit but also somewhere where people could benefit from therapeutic horticulture. Today the gardens are developed and maintained by a small core of staff with the help of a dedicated band of volunteers. They believe that the engagement of individuals with horticultural activity to improve their physical and mental health and well being.
We created a website that communicates a beautifully designed and maintained garden that is a joy for families and horticulturalists alike. It was also important to illustrate people and plants! As the garden provides a space for mental and physical wellbeing and the majority of the work is carried out by volunteers.
