Linden Lodge School
The gardens at Linden Lodge School are specially designed to support its work as a specialist regional centre for children aged two to 19 with a visual impairment, including those who are multi-disabled and visually impaired.
The exterior of the main building remains much as it was designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens in 1934. The Woodland Walk pays homage to the original Gertrude Jekyll design for the grounds. It allows children to feel the freedom of being immersed in the majestic calm of the wilderness, within a setting that has been carefully crafted to maximise safety and accessibility.
The Linden Lodge Sensory Garden is a highly appealing environment which aids in the children’s development through a variety of interactive features and sculptural elements. A sensory pathway offers a dynamic experience featuring sound stations, a bubble machine, and tactile memory posts. Sculptural displays range from soothing water features to stimulating shaped mirrors.
- Sunday 10:00–17:00
- Visitors will have the opportunity to interact with the gardens as the children do. Mobility staff will be on hand to safely guide visitors through the grounds blindfolded or in a wheelchair so they may gain insight into new ways the outdoors reveals itself when approached from a different perspective.
Refreshments and some of the children's handicrafts for sale.
