On Caroline Street in Saltaire, just opposite the Social Club (see my photo of 12 September), there is a high hedge of privet mixed with beech and hawthorn. What many people probably don't realise is that the hedge hides a rather nice garden, complete with large glasshouses. These belong to Shipley College and are part of their horticultural training department.
(What many people also don't realise is that the famous gardener, broadcaster and novelist Alan Titchmarsh started his horticultural training here, aged 18 in 1968, studying for a City and Guilds Certificate.)
Leaning over a gate and contorting myself a bit, I managed to get this photo of the garden, with Salts Mill in the background. In fact, Salts Mill sits in quite an oasis of greenery, since there are also allotment gardens alongside the railway line.
