Airlie Gardens was founded in 1901 as the estate of an affluent industrialist. At its peak in the 1920s, the 67-acre garden was plated with more than half a million azaleas and 5,000 camellias, several of which still bloom in the garden. There are actually several different gardens, including the Minnie Evans Sculpture Garden, which is filled with metal and ceramic sculptures that were crafted by local artists; the Butterfly Garden, bursting with nectar-bearing blooms; and the Pergola Garden, which was created in the early 1900s and is filled with seasonal plantings that surround a pergola. The centerpiece of the garden is the Airlie Oak, a majestic tree that dates back to 1545. Tours are self guided and maps are provided with admission. Walking trails wind past each of the gardens (with lots of benches scattered along the paths to stop and admire the views). Golf-cart tours are available for those who have trouble walking. Call 48 hours in advance to reserve a golf-cart tour.
History for Toledo Subway Map
In half a mile you reach a small area of woodland Toledo Subway Map where a path comes in from the right. Continue on in roughly the same direction, the Toledo Subway Map trees offering some welcome shelter on the very hottest days, and you soon come to a major junction of paths. Go straight over, keeping in virtually the same direction, onto a deeply rutted track. You can see Cissbury Ring straight ahead of you now, and the views to the surrounding downland are quite magnificent. In a few hundred yards you reach a public car park. You turn right onto the road here to proceed downhill to Findon, but before doing so you will want to visit Cissbury Ring.
