Morley Open Gardens
Morley, north of Derby, Derbyshire
Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd July 2017
Saturday 11.00am to 5.00pm, Sunday 12.30pm to 5.00pm
Morley is a rural parish set on the sandstone plateau just north of Derby. It consists of a number of scattered settlements connected by lanes and field footpaths. For the first time this year, a variety of large and small gardens and allotments will be open to the public, some with historical interest, one with alpacas, but all with interest for the garden lover.
Being a scattered rural village, there is the potential for keen walkers to use the field paths to move between the different settlements, but many visitors will prefer to drive, given the lack of pavements on our lanes.
The beautiful St Matthews Church and its churchyard and adjacent mausoleum will also be open for visitors. Refreshments will be available in a number of gardens throughout the village.
Proceeds in aid of St Matthews Church.
Cost: £4.00 per adult which covers both days, accompanied children free.
How to get event passports: Passports will be on sale at each of the settlements and are valid for the whole village - look for the signs as you enter the village.
Number of gardens: Approximately 22 gardens will be open, but the total may vary from day to day - please contact the organisers if you need exact numbers.
