Wirksworth Hidden Gardens and Courtyards
Wirksworth, near Matlock, Derbyshire
Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th June 2017
12.00noon to 5.00pm
This ancient town has a wide variety of intriguing courtyards and gardens that are often hidden from view but which offer glimpses of delight as you wander around the streets and alleyways.
The weekend gives a unique opportunity for visitors to look behind the walls and enjoy our private spaces where every size and type of garden and courtyard is to be found.
This year there are number of new gardens never before opened. We hope it will be especially enjoyable. We also have one garden with a miniture railway to add a particularly unique flavour.
Visitors follow a garden trail around the town centre of Wirksworth, with home made cakes and teas en-route.
All proceeds will this year go to local organisations and charities linked to Wirksworth Town and our International Charity, Study Guatemala.
