Past Events in 2016
We are really thrilled to return to this dramatic and enthralling landscape garden in the heart of the North Staffordshire countryside.
The garden is now only open for special events so we encourage all garden lovers to make the most of this opportunity to come along and explore this treasure.
With over 70 acres of lakes, garden and landscape to explore via over four miles of paths (much tarmac) and with many covered areas to sit visitors can truly make a day of it whatever the weather. Click here for a map of the venue.
Our plant fair gives the added incentive of meeting many of the country's top specialist nurseries offering a great range of plants. Visitors can enjoy the gardens and fair for the special event price of just £2.00 which must be one of the best value days out around.
Guided tours on one of the garden's buggies are available but you are advised to pre-book these with the garden as they fill up very quickly. See below to contact the garden to make your booking for a guided tour.
We first saw the gardens on the BBC Series "Open Gardens" and were amazed at the feat of landscaping undertaken by William Podmore OBE in fashioning the gardens from their industrial origins.
Entry to Fair and Gardens: £2.00 (children free)
