The Garth


The Garth

The Garth is the medieval courtyard once bordered on all sides by the dominican cloisters (only the South side of which is still extant).

With its stunning mulberry tree, it is today a popular choice for wedding photographs.

Marquees on The Garth

Larger events at The Halls choose to increase their capacity by erecting a marquee on The Garth.

As well as the flagstones bordering The Garth, the grassed area in the centre of the space covers the remains of the monastic building, which have yet to be fully documented. Extreme care is required when erecting a marquee in this area so as not to disrupt the remains which can be as little as a few inches below the surface.
