Morley Open Gardens

This event is resting for 2024
Sorry, but Morley Open Gardens isn't running this year. We'll keep you posted about next year's event details when they are known, but in the meantime we include below details from a previous year to remind you about the event

 approx 26 gardens opened Morley, north of Derby, Derbyshire
Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd July 2023
11.00am 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.

In our fourth year, a variety of large and small gardens and allotments will be open to the public, some with historical interest, one with alpacas, and one with a miniature railway. All will be of interest to the garden lover. Several gardens are new to our event this year.

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.
