Argents Mead (Hinckley)

Argents Mead is the name of attractive public gardens in the centre of the Leicestershire market town of Hinckley.

The gardens were opened to the public in 1946, and greatly improved over the Winter of 2006 - 07.

They were named after Samuel Argent, a Hinckley surgeon, who had a house on the site.

At one end of the gardens is the moat and part of the bailey of the Norman Hinckley Castle.

At the other end is St. Marys Church.

The Council Offices lie along the side. These were opened by Dr. Fisher, the Archbishop of Canterbury who officiated at the Coronation in 1953. He was a local man from Higham-on-the-Hill.
