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 14,000 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 event & volunteer days, from 10am to 3.30pm.   Our programme of full Open Days for 2017 has now completed.  The next Open Day with information sign boards and refreshments will be in Spring 2018.

From March to October, visitors are especially welcome on the
1st and 3rd Sundays of the month to see our progress. We put out a limited amount of sign boards on these days.

Visitors are also 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.

Artichoke flowers  Newsletter: Review of 2016. 

Despite the rather mixed weather, we were very pleased to welcome 850 visitors to the Walled Garden over the September Heritage Open Weekend.  Many had seen the item about us on BBC Gardeners’ World on 11 August.

We had a great team of volunteers on hand to talk to the visitors about the history of the garden and the flowers, vegetables and fruit we are growing.   The flower border down the central path was looking particularly magnificent.

“An amazing example of the

power of volunteering.”

“It’s just a wonderful garden to be in.”
