Hebden Bridge Open Gardens

 approx 35 gardens open Hebden Bridge, near Halifax, West Yorkshire
Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th July 2017
11.00am to 5.00pm

Part of the annual Hebden Bridge Arts Festival, the Hebden Bridge Open Gardens celebrates the delights and challenges of gardening in the South Pennines. The gardens reflect the ingenuity of local gardeners and include hillside terraces with beautiful views, imaginative gardens on reclaimed land and creatively planted small town spaces.

Located in the steep sided Calder Valley, Hebden Bridge is a great place to visit with loads of small independent shops and cafes. Most of the open gardens in the town itself are small but close together and a short uphill walk away. Many of the gardens are on slopes and have steps that can be uneven and slippery in wet weather. The larger gardens on the hillsides above the town are also worth visiting to appreciate the spectacular landscape.

Refreshments will be available in some gardens.

All the proceeds go towards the funding of the Hebden Bridge Arts Festival which is a community based charity.
