Garden of Tranquility


The Garden of Tranquility lies in Hyde Park. It is a memorial for those patients who suffered at the hands of Harold Shipman.

The garden includes a granite trickle fountain, designed by Mel Chantry and is surrounded by herbs reclaimed from the old Newton Lodge which once sat on the site.

Soul searching tribute, thoughtful attention to detail by the city.
BTW, was the answer: solar panels, yesterday

Nice tribute to all those that are not here anymore.

Shipman was pretty busy, wasn't he! The tribute is wonderful, but doesn't make up in any way for the terrible tragedy.

Wow, what an interesting story, but incredibly sad. I can't imagine how the families of the victims must have felt, realising that they could have had more time with their elderly relatives. That's heartbreaking. Your account is really well-written, by the way. Are you a writer by profession?
