Wow what a place! I only stumbled upon the Phoenix Garden this year (2013.) I was going to meet a pal for a beer and got a bit lost trying to find the pub when I saw the garden. It was a little like finding a Christmas present my parents had hidden in as much as I could see the place and new it was going to be great but could not open it as it was wrapped up i.e. locked! I spyed a chap working behind the fence which surrounds the Garden and asked what the crack was? I was informed that the Garden was shut for renovation work and also given a brief history of the site. My curiosity arroused I knew I would return and decided to find out more in the meantime.
