It's a wonderful garden, described on Janet's website with an informative and thorough accompanying video, and also in Gardens Illustrated:
Janet Boulton’s narrow town garden represents the journey through her life as an artist since coming to live in Abingdon, near Oxford, in 1979. It is adorned with inscribed installations in wood, slate and glass, and other objects with artistic and personal associations. Every day she spends at home, Janet walks up the steps from the kitchen, across a witty chamomile lawn and past ‘flight’ – the word is carved into a slate tablet as a poem to joy – along the winding gravel path to the heart of the garden and through the arch to the studio. “The garden is as much a declaration of my commitment to still life and to Cubism as to the gardens that have inspired my watercolour paintings.”
Erica Hunningher, Gardens Illustrated, September 2002
Here's another accolade:
'Janet's house and garden are remarkable. and totally inimitable, almost as individual as Derek Jarman's and probably more approachable than his'.
When I visited Janet, I was encouraged to walk down the garden with my own thoughts, without any explanations. It took me about half an hour to walk down the garden, appreciate the end part of the garden and come back, seeing things very differently than on the way there.
I took a series of photos on my way down the garden:
