Signs from Castle Gardens



One Royal duty which seems ever popular to commemorate the Royal visit, is that of planting a tree.


As I strolled through the gardens I came across several, very plain signs.

The one below was planted in 1946 when the Queen was still a princess.


Centuries ago there was a fairly strong Quaker church in Hillsborough and their burial grounds are within the present Castle grounds.
