Steeple Ashton Open Gardens

Steeple Ashton, East of Trowbridge
Sunday 4th June 2017
1.30pm to 6.00pm

Steeple Ashton Open GardensOne of Wiltshire's most attractive villages, Steeple Ashton, in the vale below the North-West escarpment of the Salisbury plain, is set to open its gardens again to the public in aid of its church preservation trust. The church, St Mary's, itself a gem of the late Perpendicular style from the end of the 15th century, has benefited since 1999 to the tune of over 35,000 from this bi-annual event. Prior to 1999, the beneficiary had been the Red Cross.

A dozen or so gardens are due to take part, ranging from large ones of several acres (Ashton House and The Manor) to small courtyard gardens. "The neat as well as the grand, vegetable patches as well as flower beds are all featured, so there is something for everyone," said chief organiser, Gina Manning.

There will be a plant stall on the village green, cream teas, a children's competition and Pimms at the Longs Arms pub. The village's award-winning community-owned shop will also be operating extended opening hours for the day.

Proceeds to St. Mary's church.
