The Walled Garden

Since 1971, Harlaxton Manor has been the home to Harlaxton College, part of the University of Evansville in Indiana, USA.

As we celebrate the first 50 years of Harlaxton College, and the University’s stewardship of Harlaxton Manor, we look to the future. Our Walled Garden project is a key element of our plan to capture the potential of Harlaxton to ensure the next 50 years of growth by building on the mutually beneficial relationship between our core education and heritage activities.

Our Walled Garden project has four key themes and desired outcomes:

  • Honouring our Heritage
  • Creating New Academic Space
  • Inviting the Community to be a part of our Past and Future
  • Strength and Stability

Ultimately, our vision is to provide an accessible visitor experience, delivering educational, community, cultural, environmental, economic, and social and health benefits.

We look forward to sharing more information about our Walled Garden project in the coming months.

History of the Walled Garden

The Walled Garden

Located on the dramatic and eventful approach to Harlaxton Manor, the late-19th century Walled Garden, which is 4 acres and Grade II* listed, is amongst the largest and most unique in Britain.

Gregory Gregory was immensely proud of his walled garden. He eschewed traditional walled garden design and championed the art, science, and craft of gardening.

Plans for the future

Like Gregory Gregory, we believe our plans to restore the walled garden are similarly innovative and ambitious.

With a focus on education and community participation, we will regenerate existing buildings, create a new innovation hub with external performance and exhibition spaces for use by our students and the wider public.v
