St Brides Castle

Introduction

The walled garden associated with The Abbey originated in the 16th century, but includes several subsequent phases. The formal gardens and parkland associated with The Castle were started in 1833, but the nearby walled garden may incorporate part of The Hill. The building was in hospital use from 1923-1978, and is now holiday apartments.
