Headley Open Gardens

 approx 16 gardens open Headley, Northeast Hampshire
Saturday 3rd Sunday 4th June 2017
11.000 am to 5.00pm

The gardens range from old, established ones such as The Old Rectory with a walled garden and old roses, and Weston House, an informal garden sweeping down to the Ar Valley, to more recent ones such as Denmead Cottage with steep terraces for flowers and vegetables, and Churchgate House with summer colour and a herbaceous border.

Headley is a village in northeast Hampshire, first recorded in the Domesday Book in 1066. The name Headley derives from the Old English Haedleah meaning 'heath clearing' and over the centuries has been found written in various ways as Hallege (Domesday Book), Hedlegh (13th C.) and Hedleigh (17th C.) amongst others.

At the heart of the parish is All Saints' Church. There has been a Church on the present site since the 12th century at least, possibly succeeding a Saxon Church of timber, but the nave and chancel were largely reconstructed in the late 1850s. On a grass triangle outside the Holly Bush Inn (mentioned by Cobbett in his Rural Rides) in the High Street stands a chestnut tree which was planted in 1891 on the site of the old stocks.

Proceeds to British Red Cross and Headley All Saints Parish Church.
