Amisfield Walled Garden
Amisfield Park, Haddington, East Lothian, EH41 3TE
Amisfield Walled Garden dates from 1783 and forms part of the policies of Amisfield House, a Palladian mansion that was demolished in the 1920’s. The garden is 8 acres in size and the ornamental pavilions in each corner and derelict bothies outside the walls are A-listed for their historical importance.
The garden is being restored and developed by volunteers of the Amisfield Preservation Trust for the enjoyment and benefit of the public and, in particular, for the health, well-being and education of the local community. Over the past 14 years, the garden has been transformed from a neglected and overgrown wilderness into a beautiful garden space and thriving community facility.
The restoration and development of the garden has been led by the local community from the outset. Our volunteer group includes people wishing to improve their mental or physical wellbeing, job seekers gaining work experience, classes from local primary and secondary schools, and a range of other community groups.
