Tucked away on Burnham-on-Sea's Victorian Esplanade, next to St Andrew's Church, are the Green Flag award-winning Marine Cove gardens. These formally laid out gardens are a place of tranquillity and relaxation.
Hidden behind high stonewalls away from the sea winds next to the base of the leaning tower of St Andrews Church; this area is perfect for picnics and watching the world go by. The central feature of the garden is an Art Deco style fishpond.
Sedgemoor District Council was successful in being awarded funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) to restore Marine Cove Gardens, the garden's reopened in December 2011.
In 2012 Marine Cove gardens was first awarded a Green Flag, the garden's have won it each year since.
