Guy’s Cliffe Walled Garden Trust : Email: email@example.com
The Walled Garden was originally part of the kitchen garden for Guy’s Cliffe House from at least the 1770s to the late 1940s. In recent years the garden had become totally overgrown & derelict.
Clearance work on the site started in January 2014. Since then volunteers have contributed over 11,500 hours of work to bring the garden back to life.
The aim of the volunteer project is to restore the walls and glasshouses and return the site to a working Georgian/Victorian kitchen garden for the enjoyment and educational benefit of the community, and to give an insight into how the garden supported an important country house. The garden is listed as a Grade II site by English Heritage on the Register of Parks & Gardens of Special Historic Interest.
The garden is open to the general public on event days and volunteer days. Our 2017 full Open Days (with information boards, catering and activities) will be Easter Monday 17th April, Saturday 17th June, Saturday 22nd July, Saturday 9th & Sunday 10th September. From March to October, visitors are welcome on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month to look at our progress. Visitors are also welcome to pop in on any of our normal volunteer days when we are working in the garden.
If you are interested in
helping to restore the
garden, please come to
one of our volunteer days.

The Walled Garden before restoration
work began in January 2014
We are still keeping off the new paths while they dry out, but work has been going on apace in the southern border to create our soft fruit area.
The garden is rather muddy, but work is also on going in all the central beds to prepare them for this year’s planting.
