Welcome to Guy’s Cliffe Walled Garden

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 17,000 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 all volunteer days and our special event days, from 10am to 3.30pm. Our programme for 2018 will be available soon. The next full Event Day, with information sign boards and refreshments, will be Easter Monday 2nd April 2018.  

Visitors are always welcome to pop in on any of our normal volunteer days when we are working in the garden to chat to volunteers and to follow our progress.   

If you are interested in

helping to restore the

garden, please come to

one of our volunteer days.
