The peace garden

The Peace Garden

The Peace Garden is a chapel enclosure, which was converted into a Japanese-Style garden in 2005. It contains memorials and commemorative benches for a number of former staff and students. It also houses the ashes of former College Bursar, Stanley Watkin, and former tutor, Joe Copping.

Our next stop is a modern art sculpture. Exit the Peace Garden and turn left, following the path around the outside of the chapel. On your right, is a cast concrete work of art entitled, “Metamorphosis.”
