Glyn Aur

Introduction

Glyn Aur was a cottage garden with extensive topiary, much of it representing biblical figures and events. It was sometimes known as the Garden of Eden. The garden was open in its heyday but is now sadly lost. There are, however, a number of old postcards based on photographs taken by the then owner, which show the full glory of the topiary.

Tableaux depicted in topiary included:

The Garden of Eden

The Flight to Egypt

The Crucifixion

The march of the animals to Noah's Ark

King Herod's Feast and John the Baptist's Head on a plate

The Guarding Angel
