The campaign to ensure that the Nantwich Walled Garden was restored, rather than be destroyed by an extension of the Kingsley Fields housing development, was started in 2002 by a small group of neighbours and friends. In 2004 this campaign group was reformed into the Nantwich Walled Garden Society, a not-for-profit organisation comprised entirely of volunteers, with the following aims:1. To prevent the development of housing on the site of the Old Walled Garden, off Welsh Row in Nantwich, which was once part of Townsend House.
2. To ensure that the Elizabethan walls of the garden are fully restored and reinstated.
3. To restore the garden in a way that reflects its history, so that it can be left in perpetuity for the enjoyment of the residents and visitors to Nantwich.
