The Brewers Yard garden was designed to celebrate Yorkshire’s famous beer industry and wealth of microbreweries and included a unique water feature comprised of a traditional Yorkshire Square brewing vessel.

It is this brewing vessel that has been carefully recycled and installed in the NGS Garden at Wold Top Brewery, who co-sponsored the Bestall and co-designed garden with Welcome to Yorkshire.

Gill Mellor, director of Wold Top Brewery, said: “Partnering with Welcome to Yorkshire on the Brewers Yard garden at the Chelsea Flower Show was a real dream come true for me. Before my husband and I embarked on the brewing journey, I trained in horticulture and garden design so for me it’s an opportunity to really return to my roots, so to speak.

“We are delighted that, thanks to the team at Welcome to Yorkshire and Aire Valley Construction, we have been able to relocate the water feature at the brewery’s home, Hunmanby Grange. Our events business, Muddy Souls Events hosts many weddings here every year and the fact that brides and grooms will be able to have photos taken within part of an award winning RHS Chelsea garden is fantastic.”

Sir Gary Verity, chief executive of Welcome to Yorkshire, travelled to the brewery to open the new brew plant and switch on the water feature recently.
