Set in the grounds of Sutton House, Breaker’s Yard occupies space that was once scrubland. Now it’s been transformed into a late twentieth century-themed urban oasis by arts-based educational charity The House of Fairytales and award-winning landscape designer Daniel Lobb. On a visit to the Yard, which opens on August 12 2014, you can explore its edible garden and innovative art installations, including 'The Magical Grange', a 1970s, two-storey caravan kitted out like a historic stately home. The site was also once home to an actual breakers yard, with old vehicles and unwanted junk cluttering up the place. Although the area has been cleared up, its history hasn't been forgotten. The Yard incorporates all these elements – most noticeably in the greenhouse that was previously a bus and bespoke gates that are formed from more than 1,000 toy cars. Entry to the Yard is free and admission to Sutton House is £3.50, £1 children.
