New Silent Spaces at Tremenheere

Tremeneheere is delighted to partner with Silent Space; a not-for-profit project taking place in a growing number of UK gardens that open to the public.

For a few hours at a time, each garden reserves an area where visitors have the opportunity to switch off their devices and to enjoy the restorative benefits of being silent in a green place without distraction.

The James Turrell Skyspace at the top of the garden provides a quiet, enveloping space where the visitor’s eye is drawn upwards to the sky.  The elliptical opening in the roof frames clouds as they drift past or perhaps a bird as it flies silently overhead.

The Chelsea Garden area, by Darren Hawkes, is made of a series of slate platforms that overlook the lower pond area of the garden.  Dragonflies can be seen flitting across the water.  A majestic willow catches the sunlight and time slips quietly by.

The times for Silent Space are 10.30 - 11.15am daily in the Chelsea Garden and 1pm - 1.45pm daily in the Skyspace. Silent Space was set up and is co-ordinated by garden writer, Liz Ware.
