About Queen Anne Cottage

Whitehurst Garden was built in C17 for productive and ornamental purposes as the walled garden of Chirk Castle. Queen Anne Cottage, the old banqueting house, and about an acre of land was bought by a professional gardener and is now in complete contrast to the unrestored Whitehurst garden on one side and below.

Sadly, Whitehurst Garden is now at risk of becoming a significant ‘lost garden’ as its structures are deteriorating rapidly. Years of neglect have taken their toll on this once beautiful garden and its unique historical features will be lost to future generations. It urgently needs restoration, both as a garden of special heritage interest and for the benefit of the local community.
