Improving without destroying character

Sidbury Mill, which originally dates to 1340, has been extensively restored, complete with a working water wheel. There were a number of major alterations required to the site landscaping to adapt to its new commercial role.

Originally the drive ran up a steep hill. Safe public access called for it to grade across the slope instead.

An avenue of Pyrus Nivalis trees has been planted to line both sides of the drive, with shrubs such as Cotoneaster Hybridus Pendulus, Photinia Red Robin, Viburnum Opulus and Lonicera Pileata as infill.
