Sunday 21st May 2017
10.00am to 5.00pm

Little Ouseburn is a small picturesque North Yorkshire village lying about 12 miles North West of York. The village centre is a conservation area and the 12th Century Church is a Grade 1 listed building. The Thompson Mausoleum associated with Anne Brontë and now in the care of York Conservation Trust, situated in the churchyard, will be open for visitors to the Open Gardens day.

The open gardens range from the grand to the jewel-like in size, from traditional to contemporary in design, all lovingly tended.

Home made cakes, lunches and teas will be provided by locals at the village hall as well as an outside BBQ.

There will be a Tombola, raffle, book and bottle stall, a fabulous vintage car and motorbike display (weather permitting) and a display of owls. There will also be a demonstration of lacemaking.

It should be noted that wheelchair access to gardens is limited.

Proceeds go towards our Grade 1 listed 12th century village church and the Village Hall.
