Cawthorne Open Gardens

Please note
This event rested in 2021 and we don't have any up to date event details. When we get updated information, we'll add it here, but in the meantime we include below event information from a previous year to remind you about the event.

 approx 19 gardens opened Cawthorne, near Barnsley, South Yorkshire
Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd June 2019
11.00am to 5.00pm

Discover this picture postcard Yorkshire village and join the hundreds who flock to this popular biennial event. Surrounded by rolling countryside the village has a lovely Parish Church, an impressive Methodist Church, a Museum, a gastro pub, a restaurant, Village Store with tea rooms, an Antique Centre and more.

There is little evidence of the iron and coal mining industry which once thrived here other than the stunning Georgian Mansion of Cannon Hall which was home to the Spencer Stanhopes who made their fortune from the local iron industry.

A range of gardens will be open to visitors, including some open for the first time in 2019. Quality refreshments include sandwiches, cakes, hot sausage baps, a barbeque and cream teas. Entertainment for our younger visitors will be provided, including treasure hunts to suit children of all ages and a chance to try Victorian games.

A courtesy minibus service will run regularly between gardens. Dogs on short leads are welcome in the gardens.

All proceeds for the restoration of All Saints Parish Church, and the children's charity Exodus.

Adults 5.00 in advance, 6.00 on the day, accompanied under 16s free.

How to get event passports
In advance from Cawthorne Village Store, Cawthorne Post Office, Gallery 2 or Cawthorne Victoria Museum; on the day from any open garden, the main car park and the village green.
