Luckington, near Sherston, Wiltshire Sorry - this 2020 event has had to be CANCELLED 2.00pm to 5.30pm
Last run in 2018, this year it will be a great family day out for Father's Day. Why not treat Dad to lunch or afternoon refreshments?
Village gardens of all shapes and sizes will be open. Our village has plenty to make a visit worthwhile. Its church dates back to c1200. There are numerous Grade I and II listed buildings including Luckington Court used as a setting for the BBC's famous television adaption of Pride and Prejudice, and Bridges Court former home of Sir Stewart Menzies, Head of British Secret Intelligence during WW2 and Churchill's Spymaster.
In addition to the Open Gardens, there will be a free exhibition at the village pub, The Old Royal Ship, showing the history of our village. It is funded by a grant from Heritage Lottery Fund gained to repair the historic box tombs in the churchyard. Both the churchyard (God's Garden) and the pub garden could be added to your list of locations to visit. You might also take the children to the well-equipped village playground, or take the free Heritage Trail offered.
All proceeds in support of Luckington Church.
Cost £5.00 suggested minimum donation per adult.
