If you know the Burnley Gardens, you will know that a wisteria-covered timber pergola has run along beside the Sunken Garden for many years.
Because the timber was beginning to decay, the pergola was reaching the end of its useful life.
Thanks to the Friends, funds have been made available to replace the pergola, and the work has started. This is a major project, and is very exciting.
This area of the gardens will be transformed!
It didn’t take long for the old pergola to be demolished. The cleared site looked very bare, but the workmen quickly swung into action, digging the holes for the new posts.
