Elkstone Open gardens
ELKSTONE OPEN GARDENS DAY SET TO WELCOME VISITORS Sunday June 19th 2022
Elkstone is one of the highest villages in the Cotswolds halfway between Cirencester and Cheltenham off the A417. The best way to appreciate the village is to visit the Open Gardens Day on Sunday June 19th from 2.00pm to 6.00pm. Organised by villagers to raise funds for the upkeep of the church and village hall it offers a unique opportunity to visit this village and see areas not normally accessible.
The church is known for its unusual dovecote above the chancel and its quite exceptional Norman carving, especially the two chancel arches and the sanctuary which is bathed in golden light. The bells, which have been restored and retuned during lockdown, will ring out to celebrate this special day. With many features including a Coronation wildflower meadow, the church holds a bronze eco award.
Many differing gardens will be open. Afternoon teas, refreshments, and ice creams will be available and there will be a plant stall to browse.
Adults £5, children free. Parking included. Assistance dogs only please. Follow signs off A417 or A435 to Elkstone village and then follow car park signs. Visit www.elkstonevillage.co.uk .for a taste of the beautiful gardens.
