Ushaw has a long tradition of embracing the outdoors, with our beautiful and well-maintained gardens, as well as a wide array of sports particular to the College. Our walled garden, as well as our professionally carved wooden sculptures that find their home in the grounds, see more of what Ushaw's grounds are like below:
Ushaw's Gardens, which have been a main feature of the buildings and grounds almost as long as the College itself has been established, boast a beautiful selection of flowers and greenery, as well as an old lake and wonderful walks for our visitors. For more on their history and a written tour of the gardens, visit our page.
The Walled Gardens
A 4.5 acre plot walled within Ushaw, and managed and maintained by some great gardeners, is now open to the public. We hope to schedule a programme of events and activities to enable local people to enjoy the garden as a valuable social and educational resource. For more information, visit our page.
Visitors are now free to explore the beautiful gardens for themselves, with paths winding through the ancient trees and beautiful flower beds that have characterised Ushaw's gardens for more than a century. We now also have some modern additions to the garden, in the form of gorgeous wood carvings, courtesy of the acclaimed carver Tommy Craggs. For more information, visit our page.
