Canterbury’s Franciscan Gardens in summer

The Wildflower meadow in front of Greyfriars Chapel in Canterbury

The hidden Franciscan Gardens in the centre of Canterbury is maturing year by year as its restoration continues.

An interesting feature is the meadow next to Greyfriars Chapel which straddles a braid of the River Stour. The grass remains uncut all summer allowing a cycle of flowers to appear.
