Chelsea garden returns to Yorkshire brewery roots

Part of the award winning Welcome to Yorkshire Chelsea Flower Show garden has been relocated to the Wold Newton brewery that helped to inspire the garden’s design.

The Brewers Yard garden was designed to celebrate Yorkshire’s famous beer industry and wealth of microbreweries and includes a unique water feature comprised of a traditional Yorkshire Square brewing vessel.

It is this brewing vessel that has been carefully recycled and installed in the NGS Garden at Wold Top Brewery, who co-sponsored the Bestall & Co designed garden at the famous flower show.

Gill Mellor, director of Wold Top Brewery, said: “working on the Brewers Yard garden at the Chelsea Flower Show was a real dream come true for me. Before my husband and I embarked on the brewing journey, I trained in horticulture and garden design so for me it’s an opportunity to really return to my roots, so to speak.

“We are delighted that we have been able to relocate the water feature at the brewery’s home, Hunmanby Grange. Our events business, Muddy Souls Events hosts many weddings here every year and the fact that brides and grooms will be able to have photos taken within part of an award winning RHS Chelsea garden is fantastic.”
