Plans have been unveiled for a major restoration of scenic and historic public gardens in Cornwall.

The restoration of the Victorian and Edwardian Gyllyngdune Gardens at Falmouth's Princess Pavilion will include an ornate rose walk, a quarry, ornamental urns, a shell grotto and a seat decorated with shells, the BBC reported.

The estate of Gyllyngdune, which sits on a cliff-top overlooking Falmouth Bay, was once owned by the Rector of Falmouth Parish Church back in the nineteenth century before the town council later assumed ownership and completed the gardens in 1907.

It is hoped the restoration will make the gardens more accessible while also turning the cliff-top estate into an inspirational place for people to visit.

Garden structures like wooden summer houses and log cabins can also be used by homeowners and renovators alike to add to the external character of a property. Julian German, chairman of the Gyllyngdune Gardens Executive Board, told the BBC: "This is good news for Falmouth ... Our heritage is so important in bringing people together and enhancing our identity."
