The university gardens of Liverpool Hope have been reinvented by artists influenced by Pugin

Liverpool Hope University, built on Angel Field Farm, has protected its garden heart as the city grew in around it. Now it has completely redesigned the space for a more creative, welcoming campus.

The Jesuits, Gerard Manley Hopkins and the Gothic revival architects influenced by Pugin have all left their mark here. The gardens were designed by Andy Thomson and Becky Sobell, who are now giving guided tours as the gardens open.

Andy Thomson, BCA Landscape, said: “Angel Field is full of meaning and it means the world to us. We hope it grows and matures with the people who use and grow to cherish it. It is still in its infancy and, as we all know, a garden, like us all, needs to be cared for and loved.”
