Queen’s Gardens, Sedbergh MYD36569 (c) YDNPA, 2023
These peaceful gardens were presented to the town of Sedbergh by Mrs Upton-Cottrell-Dormer of Ingmire Hall in 1906 to commemorate the reign of Queen Victoria. A stone Memorial cross is sited at the highest point. The pathways and plantings were carried out to her elaborate design by a team of her own gardeners. Originally there would have been a bandstand on the grassy slope facing the bowling green. The gardens eventually became overgrown but recent work by local people with help from the Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust has breathed new life into this secret corner of Sedbergh.
Location Gardens lie on western edge of Sedbergh beside the A684 about 1/2 mile from town centre.
