The Lost Gardens Inspires Bridge Build

Last week The Lost Gardens of Heligan’s Sir Tim Smit opened a Burmese rope bridge at the stunning Kells Bay Gardens in Ireland.

Known locally as the ‘Jewel on the Ring,’ the Gardens cover 17 hectares and contain a large collection of sub-tropical plants. The Gardens overlook the dramatic views of Dingle Bay and are filled with a variety of rare sub-tropical plants much akin to those at Heligan.

The 112ft /34 metres long bridge sits proudly 40ft above the meandering river at Kells Bay Gardens below and is already proving a popular addition and real centrepiece to the stunning gardens.
