Fisher Tomlin & Bowyer win design competition to create WW1 Commemorative Garden

In 2018 Fisher Tomlin & Bowyer will be creating a garden at the Thiepval Memorial in Northern France. The memorial is the largest in the Commonwealth and the garden of peace will stand alongside the memorial in the woodlands. Our winning entry is titled ‘Through a woodland gently” and will include oak from Wales and England as well as France and Portland Stone to reflect the materials in the memorial itself. The garden will be opened by President Macron of France in October.

This is the second time that we have created a garden in the region with the first a permanent island garden open to the public in the centre of Amiens.
