At the centre of The Quarry Park in Shrewsbury is the Dingle, formerly a stone Quarry but now a floral masterpiece created by world renowned gardener Percy Thrower of Blue Peter fame. He was Shrewsbury’s Park Superintendent for 28 years. The Dingle is a beautiful sunken garden landscaped with alpine borders, colourful bedding plants, shrubbery and water features. There are seasonal floral displays here all year round, (which in no small part have helped to secure Shrewsbury’s Britain in Bloom status).
The Dingle’s ornamental gardens opened in 1879 and a statue of Sabrina, goddess of the River Severn, can still be seen today. Take a walk beside the the River, through the Quarry and to the Dingle on your next visit to Shrewsbury.
