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 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, 10am to 3.30pm.
Our next 2017 full Open Days (with information boards, catering & activities) are:
Saturday 22nd July - National Garden Scheme Open Day
Sat 9th & Sun 10th September - Heritage Weekend Open Days.
Entry is free, except on 22nd July (NGS open day, when there will be a £2.50 charge for charity).
From March to October, visitors are especially 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.
You can follow our progress and receive updates by

We are very grateful to the head gardener at Baddesley Clinton National Trust House who has very kindly given us many hundreds of bulbs from their spring display at the house - it includes tulips, narcissi and hyacinths. We should be looking good next spring!
Potting on and planting has been going on apace in the garden over the last few weeks in preparation for our open days over the next few months.
