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, from 10am to 3.30pm. Our next 2017 full Open Days (with information boards, catering & activities) are:
Saturday 9th September & Sunday 10th September,
as part of the Heritage Weekend Open Day Scheme. Entry is free.
From March to October, visitors are especially welcome on the
1st and 3rd Sundays of the month to look at 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.
You can follow our progress and receive updates by

We had a fantastic charity open day on 22 July. This was the first time we had opened for the National Garden Scheme and we raised over £700 for their nursing charities.
About 320 visitors came to the garden and many were very complimentary about our progress in the restoration project. Peter & Mary’s cakes, made from garden produce, proved very popular as usual.
The BBC were also in the garden filming a piece about us for Gardeners’ World shown on 11 August, which was all very exciting. If you missed it, you can see it on YouTube click here.
