Cheltenham’s district general hospital sits on a very constrained site near the centre of town. It is centred around the original early 19th entrance but has since had many additions and alterations.
The grounds are fortunate to have some fine specimen trees, and small numbers of new trees are planted each year to maintain a healthy tree cover. The grounds have five garden areas, as well as a number of courtyards. The hospital also has a small copse adjacent which is under development as a nature trail. The grounds are maintained by a small gardening team employed by the hospital under the guidance of two landscape professionals.
