Colclough Walled Garden


Colclough Walled Garden is a 19th century garden near Saltmills in south County Wexford.

The garden may be an ideal filming location for scenes that need a venerable garden or for scenes that need an outdoor period location. The garden was built in the 1810s, and the current garden is a recreation of the layout of the garden from the 1830s. And as much as is possible, the garden is maintained with authentic Georgian methodology. So the garden has the same feel and look as it may have had in the 1800s.

The location is actually broken into two gardens. On the east side is the ornamental garden, and on the west side is the kitchen garden. The two gardens are separated by a intermural wall. The whole garden is enclosed by the original brick wall from the early 1800s. A stream flows through the garden and is crossed by five bridges.

Colclough Walled Garden is located on the grounds of Tintern Abbey, which may offer filmmakers more opportunities to film period scenes.
