Priory Memorial Gardens 2712

Royston, England, Hertfordshire, North Hertfordshire

Brief Description

Priory Memorial Gardens are mid-20th-century public gardens designed by Arthur Whydale, situated within the precinct of the medieval Roys Cross Priory.


The gardens were purchased by public subscription and laid out to a design by Arthur Whydale, a local architect, in 1948. The churchyard was amalgamated with the garden in the early-1990s. Both lie within the former precinct of the medieval Roys Cross Priory. The grounds were given belt and kitchen gardens in the late-18th century when the priory was a private residence; some of these elements were included in the mid-20th-century design.
