CED Stone Inspiring Beautiful Landscapes

The Macmillan Legacy Garden

Silver Medal


This garden interprets the legacy of Douglas Macmillan, the founder of Macmillan Cancer Support, and has been created to encourage visitors to support Macmillan’s work by leaving a legacy in their will.

The rolling fields of Castle Cary in Somerset, where Douglas Macmillan grew up and retired, have inspired the design. In the charity’s early years, voluntary nurses used bicycles to travel to visit patients in their homes, providing a lifeline to those in need. Rows of planting and clipped hedges set the scene of the rural communities where this vital support from Macmillan nurses was gratefully received.
