Main Street

Anchored by Barwick in Elmet’s famous 86 feet (26.21m.) maypole Main Street is flanked by beds and troughs for almost its entire length. On the left as you face south is our Heritage bed created in 1999. As well as shrubs and annual flowers a display of wheat is planted around the ancient plough to represent our historic and continuing link with agriculture. The herbaceous bed running for some 150 metres at the foot of the east wall was created from a neglected grass verge. Now edged with cobble pavers it provides a yearlong display of colour and interest. The remaining beds through to and in front of Jack Heaps field are planted with year-round displays of annual plants. Please be mindful of traffic if viewing these areas.
