Whatstandwell, near Crich, Derbyshire Sunday 14th July 2019 1.30pm to 5.30pm
Whatstandwell is a Derbyshire village on a hillside. There are few gardens without some degree of slope and yet the gardeners have managed to create interesting and enjoyable spaces with terracing, steps and pathways. From many of them there are also attractive views across the Derwent valley to enjoy. Although garden numbers may be few it can take a while to enjoy a leisurely amble around the village to take them all in.
Refreshments are available to purchase around the route, either to sit and enjoy the surroundings or simply to take a breather before moving on. There may well also be exhibits by local artists featured in some of the gardens.
A different local charity is selected every year and in 2019 proceeds will be going to Derbyshire Wildlife Trust
Plant sales There will be plants for sale in at least one of the gardens which will have been grown locally by the gardener.
Cost Likely £3.50 or £4.00 this year.
How to get event passports Buy tickets in advance from the Family Tree restaurant at the bottom of the village on the A6 or on the day from the Family Tree or the gardens themselves.
