Middleton-by-Wirksworth, near Matlock, Derbyshire Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th June 2019 11.00am to 5.00pm
Middleton is surrounded by traditional flower meadows containing many species of orchids that will be flowering in June when our gardens and yards in this rugged hilltop village will open to visitors for the sixth year.
In 2018 our tiny village achieved a Gold Award in the RHS East Midlands in Bloom competition and retrained its Best Village status. In 2019 we are proud to represent East Midlands in the prestigious national RHS Britain in Bloom competition.
There are excellent village pubs at both the top and the bottom of the village as well a number of garden-based refreshment stops for those well earned rests. We also have a superb covered picnic stop in our community garden overlooking the village and surrounding countryside.
If you plan to visit the RHS Chatsworth Show in 2019 then why not take the opportunity to also visit some brilliant local gardens just a few miles away? Expect a warm welcome along with superb views and amazing gardens.
All proceeds from the sale of the trail guide will go towards future village projects.
