Headley Open Gardens

 approx 12 gardens open Headley, Northeast Hampshire
Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th June 2023
10.30am to 5.00pm

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.

There will be a range of gardens open on both days and these will be of varying size and layout from the cottage garden to the larger garden. There will also be a themed Children's competition in all the gardens and a Treasure Hunt at Little Benifold.

Teas will be provided at two of the gardens and lunches will be served at The Church Centre (opposite All Saints Church).

Proceeds will go to The Rosemarie Foundation.
