Blockley is located south of Chipping Campden. One of the attractions of Blockley is Mill Dene Garden, which was established at the former mill on the slope.
The Mill Dene Garden has a number of attractive garden features - roses climbing on the ropes tied with timbers, rose pergolas, trellis with old roses and clematis, flowerbeds thriving with old roses, foxgloves, peonies, lupins, etc, the lawn garden with the doll of a cricket player, marble grotto, and potage garden on the top of the valley garden, to name just a few.
Gardeners regularly put new plants and maintain the borders and flowers, and plumbers maintain watercourses and pond.
The highlight is a Mill Pond, which is the last destination of the route. There are a lot of attractive aquatic plants, e.g. lilacs and flowerbeds with lavenders, topiaries, succulents, and jasmines. Visitors can enjoy strolling through the Mill Pond and see ducks, herons, and swans swimming on the pond in the tranquil environment. The former mill and industry building were converted to the tea room and plant centre, so that visitors can have afternoon teas whilst viewing the beautiful water garden.
