William Pye Water Scupture


It was at Aberglasney near Camarthen in South Wales that evidence of a Tudor garden was discovered some years ago. This is being painstakingly restored, with some contemporary additions, one of these being the Sunken Garden.

Attached to the main garden are some outbuildings and a row of cottages which enclose a rectangular space and forms the 'site' where I was given the unique opportunity to create a water garden.

These photographs were taken as the installation was nearing completion, the beds newly planted and immature. I look forward to returning when shrubs and plants have grown and spread over walls and copings to soften the general aspect and high points of topiary define the space, as indicated in the maquette.
