A beautiful area of landscaped wildlife garden linking with other green spaces across Boars Hill
This landscaped wildlife garden with a large ornamental pond is a memorial to the Bridges family. It was once part of the garden to Stockwell, the home of Ali Akbar and Elizabeth Daryush (daughter of the poet Robert Bridges). Ali Akbar Daryush bequeathed the house and garden to OPT in 1989.
The garden has been designated a Local Wildlife Site for its unimproved acid grassland, which is rare in Oxfordshire, and a place where bee orchids can be found in the late spring. Today there is full public access for all to enjoy.
