Winchester College Garden of Remembrance

Introduction

The arcaded Cloisters consist of knapped flint, dressed stone and English oak. The cross in the centre is designed by Alfred Turner and the central gabled entrance has a Madonna by Charles Wheeler. This is reputedly the largest private war memorial in Europe.The Garden of Remembrance following Jekyll’s idea was planted up with roses and white lilies in the grass areas where they touched the arcades. Following a revamp in the 1960s much of the Jekyll planting was replaced and following a further, major redesign in 2014 there is sadly almost nothing left of Jekyll’s plan.
