Title: Italian Gardens
Description: Once a chalk quarry, the gardens were created at the end of 1904 after it was found that the quarrying work was contaminating a nearby water source for the town. Built into a hollow in the cliff, the garden is located by the Holywell beach and its circumference has been lined with trees; this provides shade during the summer and makes an ideal picnic spot. A midsummer's open-air theatre is also held here.
