After years of neglect the original greenhouses, heated frames and gardener’s buildings within the walled garden of West Cliff House have been lost or destroyed. A small section of a south facing espalier wall that remains in the middle of the 0.2 acre plot is now preserved as a reminder of the garden’s heritage.

In 2011 a modern energy efficient single story eco-house was completed along the eastern wall incorporating the benefits of a living green roof, solar gain, high levels of insulation, MVHR (mechanical ventilation with heat recovery) photovoltaic solar panels and rainwater harvesting.

Since then the land to the west and south of the three bedroomed dwelling is being designed and grown as a sustainable and edible forest garden using proven permaculture principles.

The resident owners of the walled garden are committed to ‘green’ ideals and have created a wildlife haven well in keeping with the original purpose of the land.

 

Trees Appeal

50trees

2020 marks the 50th anniversary of the Ramsgate Town conservation area. To celebrate this the Ramsgate Society would like to plant 50 trees within the conservation area for future generations to enjoy. We will be planting the trees during National Tree Week on Saturday 28th  November - if social distancing rules allow.

If you would like to volunteer to help please contact Irene, or donate to our fundraising campaign.
