Stebbing Village Open Gardens and Scarecrow Trail

 approx 15 gardens open Stebbing Village, near Great Dunmow, Essex
Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th June 2018
12.00noon to 6.00pm

It is said that "If a 16th century Stebbing Yeoman were to walk from the parish church of St Mary's down the high street today, much would be familiar to him".

Join us and take a walk through our beautiful ancient village and visit our gardens, including three with intriguing use of water. From the bijoux to large open landscapes, the gardens provide a wide variety of styles, sizes and inspiration for the enthusiastic gardener.

Spot the scarecrows as you amble through the village - some in gardens, some hiding - waiting to be found. A variety of shapes and sizes will greet you and on Sunday, the Scarecrows will be paraded and judged in the Church Field.

Come and join in the fun and visit the Craft Fair, Art Show and Local History Display. Together with plant sales and of course scrummy homemade refreshments the weekend will offer something for everyone to enjoy. Free hop-on-hop-off minibus.

Why not stay into Saturday evening and enjoy our live music, BBQ and bar.
