I discovered this gorgeous garden at the back of Lichfield Library a few weeks ago. There are plants from the 17th and 18th century, supplied by Castle Bromwich Hall Gardens and Victorian plants from The Walled Garden nursery at Bretby Park, Burton on Trent. The walls running alongside are interesting. There’s a mixture of brick and stone and a bricked up entrance. I’m guessing that it’s called Monk’s Walk in reference to the Friary which once occupied the site, but I’ve yet to find much information about the history of the garden.
I’ve found more information on the history of the garden on the Staffordshire Gardens & Park Trusts website.
