This courtyard garden sits adjacent to the Cambridgeshire Police Headquarters in Hinchingbrooke. A memorial for fallen police personnel, the design recreates a constabulary crest and has a restored blue police telephone box at its centre.
Reflecting the brief from the Chief Constable, the garden areas continue around the complex, with ethereal planting themes bringing a peaceful serenity.
The circular police badge design has planted beds in its outer and inner peripheries, with pedestals and plaques showing 190 officers and staff names who have died in service since the mid-1800s. Remembrance Day memorials take place in the garden every year.
Grasses, verbena, low level shrubs and herbaceous varieties complement and define the spiral designs in the entrance planting.
Bespoke steel features add structural and visual interest alongside the swathes of grass, low level box hedging and cobble, gravel and slate walkways.
The garden was funded by the force, The Police Federation and Police Authority and opened by the Lord-Lieutenant of Cambridgeshire.
