A Chelsea Flower Show gold medal-winning garden has been permanently moved to a West Yorkshire park.

The garden in Roundhay Park, Leeds, is alongside other previous Leeds City Council gardens from Chelsea.

The win means back-to-back golds after the council's 2010 garden was the first local authority entry to win in the large outdoor show garden category.

The centrepiece has a working water mill with a 10ft (3m) wheel to pump water around the rest of the garden.

The 2011 garden's theme was to showcase the power of nature and the role of water power in the industrial past.

Of the nine Chelsea gardens produced by Leeds City Council, seven can now be seen in the city, including four in the Gardens of the World display at Roundhay Park.

The other Chelsea gardens in Leeds are at Canal Gardens in Roundhay, Millennium Square and the White Rose Shopping Centre.
