Tyne and Wear HER(5726): Jesmond Dene, water feature - Details
Jesmond Dene, water feature
Gardens Parks and Urban Spaces
Water feature probably designed as a waterfall. This is one example of a number of small "grottos" in the Dene, created at the bottom of steep rock faces where hollowed stones allowed small pools to form. The surrounding rocks were originally planted with ferns and plants with a creeping habit such as Periwinkles.
