The secret garden

The secret garden

As you drive along the Whitepark road east out of Bushmills (as the Giro d’Italia did) there is an estate on the right hand side called Dundarave, with a stone wall for hundreds of yards out of the village. The house is shrouded in trees but if you google it the pictures suggest it was an impressive building. The grounds and gates you can see from the road suggest a long period of fading splendour. The walled garden also had a wooden door. Now there is just a wooden frame remaining. I took this shot from the road and couldn’t resist a peak inside – overgrown but rich in bluebells.
