Sheffield Botanical Gardens

In July this year this year we visited the Botanical Gardens in Sheffield. This shall be the first of 3 blog posts relating to photos that I took while at the gardens.

The Sheffield Botanical Gardens were originally opened on 29th June 1836 by the Sheffield Botanical and Horticulture Society. The gardens were originally designed by Robert Marnock, gardener of Bretton Hall, Wakefield.

The 19 acre gardens now consists of 15 different garden areas including woodland, American Prairie, Asian, and more.

It is somewhere that you really could spend the entire day there. The gardens are beautiful and tranquil. There are so many different flowers and plants. Even if your not a plant/gardening enthusiast it is just a beautiful place to wander round and relax.

The gardens provided me with many great photo opportunities, which I will continue in later posts. The photos in this post were taken in the woodland areas.
