Hidden Gardens of the Royal Mile: Unexpected Green Gems in Edinburgh's Old Town by Jean Bareham (Paperback) (ISBN: 9780957046603)

Edinburgh's Old Town, and the Royal Mile in particular, is associated with nearly one thousand years of Scottish history, has its own Castle and Palace, and is at the centre of the Edinburgh Fringe.

Few people associate the area with gardens. Yet Edinburgh's Old Town is greening up.

In this book, you will find:
unexpected gardens hidden behind the historic buildings; practical information, route suggestions and a handy map to help you explore gardens both grand and small; a social history showing you gardens that are 'hidden in history', including grand aristocratic 17th century town gardens, and inspiring children's gardens laid out in the early 20th century slums, and Interviews with today's residents who are planting up the closes and courtyards, and even enjoying wildlife in the Old Town.

Jean Bareham founded Greenyonder Tours. Jean says: 'I love showing guests all kinds of green space, whether it's a beautiful historic site, a wildlife garden, or a spot of guerrilla gardening. While researching Hidden Gardens of the Royal Mile I became inspired by Patrick Geddes - a century ago, believing that people in cities suffer from 'nature starvation', he created children's gardens in Edinburgh's Old Town. I've researched these sites and show them in the tour By Leaves We Live - at the same time showing what communities today are doing to create growing spaces around the city.' Jean Bareham is a qualified English language teacher.
