Turton Tower Kitchen Garden - Open Garden for NGS
Set in the tranquil gardens of Turton Tower the Kitchen Garden is set on a sloping site, with 4 large beds and borders which have been subdivided for vegetables, herbaceous perennials, summer annuals, soft fruit and a variety of fruit trees. The garden was established in Victorian times but fell into disuse and became badly overgrown in the 20th century, though it was worked for a few years during and shortly after WW2. The project to restore it began in 2008 by a committed enthusiastic group of volunteers. The garden was completely covered with brambles, ferns, old bushes and trees unrecognisable as a garden.
Sun 29 May (11-4). Admission £3, Children free. Light refreshments in The Woodland Cafe. Times:11:00 to 16:00. Open for charity.
