By kind permission of Hill Close Gardens Trust
Another first for our Friends! Set in the heart of Warwick, Hill Close Gardens are rare survivors of Victorian detached, hidden, hedged gardens once used by townsfolk who, living above their businesses, had nowhere to grow flowers, fruit, vegetables, keep a pig or relax. This unique set of 16 gardens, featuring four Grade II Victorian summer-houses, are the only ones now open to the public in England. Your two-hour guided tour outlines their rescue from development in the 1990s, revealing the lives of the garden owners & tenants – auctioneers, drapers, boot-makers. It is a garden visit into another era.
Tea, coffee & cake included. Plants and produce from the gardens for sale.
Friends £15, guests £20
