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 17,500 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.  

We have spent the last weeks of the  year  

preparing the Garden for the winter season.  

In January and February 2019

we shall be working in the Garden every Sunday and visitors are always welcome to

drop in and see our progress.

The main schedule of opening dates for

2019 will be announced here in due course.

If you are interested in

helping to restore the

garden, please come to

one of our volunteer days.
