About

Middleton: Paradise Regained – Reclaiming a Regency Rarity A grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund announced on March 1 2017 was the final piece of the jigsaw signalling the launch of the construction phase of a £7.2 million project to restore the legendary landscape of one of the finest Regency waterparks in Britain. Our historic parkland restoration project is now well and truly under way. Between now and 2020 we will be returning this fabulous landscape to how it was in its heyday at the beginning of the 19th century. When completed, the Garden will once more feature the necklace of seven lakes, cascades, falls and weirs created more than 200 years ago and again boast the Regency planting scheme that formed the heart of its parkland. This project will rejuvenate the landscape for visitors to enjoy and will tell the story of more than 250 years of East India Company influence that shaped the landscape of this part of Wales. Over the coming months you will be able to follow the progress of the project, or even take part as a volunteer. There will be lots to do. Why not join in our archaeological investigations and wildlife surveys, take hard hat tours to see the works on-site or learn skills that were once needed, and will be again, to manage this landscape. You will also be able to enjoy guided walks and talks, living history events and a host of activities and events celebrating the Garden’s heritage.
