The memory walk

Take a trip down memory lane by following the signposts in the Gardens for the Memory Walk, designed and constructed by Dementia Friendly East Riding. Find Bill and Ben the Flower Pot Men along a specially constructed nature walk which starts at the front of the house and finishes in the historic Walled Garden.

The walk includes a wildlife challenge to find and identify the many animals, insects and birds that live in Bill and Ben's garden. In the Walled Garden you can also enjoy a special display featuring all the characters from the The Wizard of Oz, celebrating the films 80th anniversary, designed and built by Worklink Sewerby.

Dementia Friendly East Riding supports people living with dementia, their families and carers and helps to raise awareness and understanding of the condition. The memory walk aims to provide a sensory experience that can be enjoyed by young and old alike. People living with the dementia will be able to engage in a variety of activities designed to stimulate positive emotions through smell, touch, sight and hearing.
