Reclaimed water garden at Salvo Fair

Above: A quick tour around V & V Reclamation, Hertford, showing some of the elements they will be bringing for their reclaimed water garden at Salvo Fair, Knebworth, this year.

Knebworth, Hertfordshire UK - WHAT do Harrod's Dispensary, Lord Snowdon's London Zoo Aviary, and Paternoster Square next to St Paul's Cathedral have in common? The answer is that pieces of them will appear on V & V Reclamation's spectacular reclaimed water garden at this year's Salvo Fair at Knebworth.

The garden will be set out in the formal neobeauxarts style, paved with grass and bordered by reclaimed flagstones. The front of the stand will be flanked by ten circular exposed aggregate planters from Stevenage town centre, turned into pools with small pink Aberdeen granite obelisks alternating with riven Liscannor stone left over from last year's Chelsea Flower Show.

A sentry box from Whitechapel, a communal washing trough from Cheshire, a post office pillar box from Mortlake (finish of the annual Oxford and Cambridge boat race), carved stonework from St Thomas Hospital and a sixteen foot high decorative cast iron column topped by a statue will set off the enclosing walls, seating and plants. It should be a delight.

Everything will be for sale, with 50 businesses and 500 tonnes of stock covering 5 acres of Knebworth's beautiful deer park, so come along for a day of browsing and buying, with some inspiring too.

Salvo Fair, Sat 30 Jun and Sun 1 Jul 2007, Knebworth House, Hertfordshire. By car to J7 A1(M). By train to Stevenage, then a 10 min taxi ride. TRADE DAY: Fri 29 Jun. Web www.salvo-fair.com
