During morning coffee in the garden we heard a loud crack and discovered a big split appearing down the centre of the trunk. We were literally dialling the landlord’s number when down half of it came, narrowly missing the tea shop window. We then had to rope off the other half and pull it into the garden, away from the Workshops.
A great shame that this magnificent tree couldn’t make it through this latest storm as they have been such a feature of the gardens here for so many years. Let’s just hope that the remaining tree, outside SerenArts Gallery, can stand strong on its own.
It is business as usual down here at the Workshops, but at some point we will have to cut up the debris, so there may be a nice supply of cherry wood for the fires this coming winter.
It’s that time of year again… and the hanging baskets have been planted and are out the front of the gallery. We’ve gone for two this year which is a challenge for us and our shortage of green fingers! Watch this space for growth updates.
We took this photo this morning as filming got underway at the Tithebarn area on a Netflix production called ‘Cursed’. It has meant a bit of disruption for us down here at the Workshops but nice to see our town appearing in a big production. We particularly liked the ‘period’ steaming straw / dung pile!
You can still get down to us here at SerenArts, but it would be easier to park in the Station Car Park and stroll round by the river.
