Come and visit the Dream Shelter at Brigit’s Garden, a special feature celebrating the Winter Solstice. It is a circular ‘bed’ of limestone sheltered by a willow enclosure carved with the constellations of stars visible at 6pm on December 21st, the shortest day of the year. This is a place to lie and dream, with the stars above you and below you.
