    Default Leckhampton Nurseries, Cheltenham July 2018


    This was a chance find on our way home, after spotting some overgrown structures through the trees we decided to turn around and have a look.

    It turned out to be an old plant nursery containing some very large greenhouses - a sensible place to explore on the hottest day of the year I'm sure you'd agree. Mind you we struggled to actually get inside any of them other than the largest one as there is some seriously epic bramble growth here, more than I've ever seen anywhere.

    There wasn't much to the place so we were in and out fairly quickly but as the old saying goes 'any hole's a goal'....

    I believe it once may have been part of the almost adjacent and operational Berry's Nurseries, the sign on the road says Leckhampton Nurseries however I can't find a jot of info about it online, just a planning application for land on the same road which calls it Berry's Nurseries.























    Thanks for looking :)

    That's what I call a greenhouse.
    Nice photos as well.
    Don't worry about security until you've been caught.
