Cyril remembered in Ravenglass, south Cumbria

A very simple raised flower bed is the focal point for this memorial garden in Ravenglass, south west Cumbria.

Positioned near to the main car park entrance to the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway,
it will be passed by tens of thousands of people every year, but how many notice or ask about it’s history.

The garden consists of a long curved stone and wood seat and a raised flower bed surrounded by grass.

Carved into a small flat stone, at the centre of the seat back are the words ‘ Cyril’s garden’.

Do you know the story about the garden, how it came to be and who, or what, was Cyril?
