Springfield Sanctuary

The Sanctuary encompasses a large, wooden summerhouse overlooking two herb gardens and a small oak glade where three springs feed into a hidden pond. The glade includes many ancient trees including oak, ash, elder, hawthorn, hazel, willow, rowan, crabapple and field maple, as well as more recent plantings of apple and Balm of Gilead poplar. Benches are located in convenient spots so that visitors can sit and admire the view or engage in meditation - whatever takes their fancy.
