Quarry Garden, Belsay Hall


The Quarry Garden, in the grounds of Belsay Hall, is a dramatic sheltered garden created out of the quarry from which the stone was extracted in the early 19th century to build Belsay Hall. The Hall, Castle and grounds are in the care of English Heritage, who restored the Quarry Garden in the mid-1990s to reveal the full height of the quarry cliffs and the monumental rock faces, in line with their original 1830s concept of 'Awesome Nature'.[1]
