South Garden – That Population Gate

Veddw - South Garden - That Population GateI want to include the people who worked this land in the past in the garden, to remember them and to try to imagine a little of what their world was like.

This gate displays some quotations about the people who lived here in the 19th century, written in the first half of the nineteenth century on one side.

On the other is an extract from the Survey of the Manor of Chepstow August 15th 1687, identifying the Veddw at that time as ‘Waste’, which was similar to a Common.
