A new garden is to be created in the castle grounds in honor of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
The garden – which will feature gentle, curving walkways that take the visitor on a journey through light feather planting – will serve as a permanent memorial to the Jubilee celebrations.
Work will begin on the new garden, next to the boules court in the castle grounds over the next few weeks, with a pastel and platinum theme.
Plants have been carefully chosen to attract wildlife and provide year-round interest and durability. Specimen trees and shrubs will provide structure and dappled shelter to the area.
The garden’s contemporary design includes sculptures and structures celebrating the Queen’s 70 years as a pillar of British life.
The design will be combined with a naturalistic plantation style and reflective pathways or allowing visitors to sit peacefully on the curved benches, cushioned by the surrounding 70 pillar walls and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.
Cllr Rob Pritchard, Deputy Leader of Tamworth Borough Council, said: ‘Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee is a historic occasion and here in Tamworth we want to create something that will be a permanent memorial and will be open to the whole community.
“The garden is the perfect tribute to the devotion our Queen has given to her country and her people. I believe this tribute will be well received by the people of Tamworth as they join in the celebrations of the special event.
