The Ridges, Chorley – Mr and Mrs J Barlow
The unique and quirky garden at Mill Barn is a delight, or rather a series of delights. Along the River Darwin, through the tiny secret grotto, past the suspension bridge and view the fairy tale tower, visitors can stroll past folly, sculptures, lily pond, and lawns, enjoy the naturally planted flowerbeds, then enter the secret garden and through it the pathways of the wooded hillside beyond.
