Nassington Open Gardens
Nassington, near Peterborough, Cambridgeshire/Northamptonshire border
Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th June 2017
1.00pm to 5.00pm
The gardeners in Nassington are busy planning, pruning and planting as the village gets ready for its Open Gardens weekend. The village in North East Northamptonshire on the river Nene has a population of approximately 800 and a large number of them will be involved during the weekend.
The village has been opening its gardens to the public every two or three years since 1997, in aid of Church funds. This year, as in past years, we will have a wide range of gardens open on both days ranging from the small cottage or courtyard to the larger landscaped garden.
Prebendal Manor will be open on both days as part of the event. The garden is Europe's largest recreated medieval garden, described by Alan Titchmarsh as a "stunning example of a recreated medieval garden" and has been featured on BBC2, Radio 4 and in 5 top magazines including Country Life.
The Church will be open both days for the sale of refreshments including home made cakes.
Proceeds to Nassington Church for the maintenance and upkeep of the church and services.
Cost: £5.00 per adult per day - children under 16 years free
How to get event passports: Tickets available on the day from the official car parks or from the church.
Number of gardens: Approximately 20 gardens will be open, but the total may vary from day to day - please contact the organisers if you need exact numbers.
