Michelham Priory´s 7 acre beautiful and tranquil gardens are set on a moated island. Originally this was an Augustinian Priory. The longest water-filled medieval moat in England is home to a myriad of wildlife, while the grounds are planted with a clever mix of formal gardens and wilder, more natural areas. The Priory grounds feature area’s of historic recreation that display medieval gardening practises, plants grown, and their usage by the Priory’s original inhabitants, the Augustinian Canons. These areas include the Physic garden, a collection of medicinal herbs, the Cloister garden, an example of pleasure gardening, and the Orchard, deeply symbolic in Monastic life. Kitchen and water gardens are also to be explored before taking a stroll around the moat walk to the working watermill.The ingenious planting offers an ever-changing seasonal display, from delicate meadow flowers in spring to a spectacular show of late summer herbaceous splendour.
