Physic gardens, Cowbridge
Wales

Walk down Church Street in the ancient market town of Cowbridge and behind a high stone wall lies Cowbridge Physic Garden.  The garden was originally part of the Old Hall Gardens, laid out by the Edmondes family in the 18th century. Badly neglected in the 20th century it was brought back to life by enthusiastic volunteers and  today is a glorious array of medicinal plants and herbs, typical of  physic gardens from centuries past.

The site is relatively small, just ½ acre (0.2ha) but is laid out in a formal pattern and contains  a fascinating variety of  species that would traditionally have been used for healing, cooking and dyeing fabrics.
