SIR, - Much mention has been made recently about Future Gardens. Two weeks ago on a lovely sunny morning I took my wife there.

As she is unable to walk very far I took her wheelchair so that I could push her round. To my dismay I discovered that the paths were not of a firm nature but rolled gravel and some of the paths to the gardens were loose gravel.

Many times her chair became stuck and she had to get out and walk. There were also a number of small steps which meant either she had to get out or the chair had to be tipped to get up them.

Some areas were completely inaccessible with a wheelchair. What should have been an enjoyable time became more of a nightmare and within 45 minutes we gave up and went home. A waste of the entrance fee.

Despite an email to the Gardens we have still not received a reply two weeks later.

Future Gardens in my view is not wheelchairfriendly. So visitors with disabled people beware.
