The Plantation Garden on Earlham Road is only a quarter of a mile from Norwich city centre. This varied and idiosyncratic garden was established 140 years ago in a 3 acre abandoned chalk quarry. A visit is highly recommended. The highlight for mosaic fans is the way in which various bits of salvaged masonry were montaged together in the walls, fountain and Italianate stairs. The effect is a mosaic-like collage of architectural ceramics running right through the garden.
