Chat to the Garden Team and find out more about the Museum’s gardens

27th June 2021

Museum Gardens at COAMVisit the Museum Gardens and chat to the Garden Team

In addition to our historical buildings, the Museum boasts a number of small traditional gardens. These gardens have been designed and planted to be as authentic as possible in regard to the buildings they surround.  They are managed organically and are mostly looked after by museum volunteers.

Our gardens include a formal Arts and Crafts garden, a pretty cottage garden, and a ‘dig for victory’ allotment (next to the 1940s prefab), cherry, and apple orchards. The orchards have a collection of heritage varieties, some local to the Chilterns.

On Sunday, 27th June, our Garden Team will be on site to talk to visitors about the gardens and the work that they’re doing.
