The Magistrates Association

About This Project

A garden full of story-telling symbols and allusions to celebrate the 650th anniversary of The Magistrates’ Association – as well as dedicated to their future.


The garden is therefore imagined, as a courthouse would be, in a central and modern town location, backing onto the courtrooms themselves and set above an urban car-park. This means that all plants are either in containers or else have shallow root balls to fit this parameter. The garden has been designed for use by the magistrates themselves, to work, reflect or relax in during the working day.
