"In 1908 a Japanese Garden was laid out on reclaimed bogland to the south of the Triton Pond. A series of concentric paths leads the visitor around the garden which features a pagoda, stone lanterns and several bridges over a stream. The inner circles suggest a discovery of our inner selves, while the outer circles, which run along the upper part of the garden, provide a greater knowledge of the world around us. Planting in this area includes Japanese Maples, Azaleas and Chinese Fortune Palms (Trachycarpus Fortunei).
Also close to the Japanese Garden is a facinating 18th century grotto made of fossilised sphagnum moss." 




In the water
Under the pines on shore
Stand the friendly cranes;
A thousand and eight thousand years
Will they live on.
