Walled Garden Cucumber Frame


Restoration of the Cucumber Frame

Built in 1864 and formally the kitchen garden serving Wollaton Hall, the Walled Garden has become dilapidated over the years. Working with partners across Nottinghamshire, the Walled Garden restoration is part of a major project to transform the Wollaton Hall & Deer Park estate to a World of Wonder. One aim is to restore the Cucumber Frame to its original condition by rebuilding the timber and glazed superstructure, which will be an iconic feature to the Walled Garden.


Project developments

The former Cucumber Frame has been cleared and the brambles and trees dug out to help maintain and protect the structure. Sections of the Cucumber Frame’s wall have been built and repointed to give stability to the walls.
