This event is resting for 2020 Sorry, but Whatstandwell Open Gardens isn't running this year. We'll keep you posted about next year's event details when they are known, but in the meantime we include below details from a previous year to remind you about the event
Whatstandwell, near Crich, Derbyshire Sorry - this 2020 event has had to be CANCELLED
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.
Proceeds are donated to a different local charity each year.
Plant sales There will be plants for sale in at least one of the gardens which will have been grown locally by the gardener.
How to get event passports These can be purchased on the day from any of the participating gardens. A location map will be posted on the Open Gardens page of our village website.
Directions The village and gardens are easily accessible starting at the Family Tree on the A6 or from the village railway station. If you are coming by car, check the location map on the Open Gardens page of our village website.
