Welcome to Yorkshire Garden 2019
The Welcome to Yorkshire Garden 2019, designed by Mark Gregory, won a Gold Medal and the BBC People’s Choice Award.
It was inspired by the county’s proud history of industry, manufacturing and innovation, as well as its stunning natural environment. Reminiscent of the urban regeneration that has taken place along many of Yorkshire’s canals, the garden consists of a towpath running next to a perennial meadow that borders a pair of narrow canal lock gates and a lock keeper’s lodge with private garden and vegetable patch.
The garden focused on the beauty of the natural and the cultivated, it celebrated the area’s industrial heritage and champions the rich diversity of native flora alongside cultivated varieties.
