In aid of The Shropshire Historic Churches Trust

This year's Cardington garden opening in aid of Shropshire Historic Churches Trust is on Sunday August 12th. Please note that the information on this and linked pages relates to 2016 at the moment, though it should give you a good idea of what is on offer this year.

We invite you to spend an afternoon in Cardington village, located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Come and enjoy our warm hospitality and the incredible variety of our gardens. We offer one of the most charming group openings in the Marches. The gardens surrounding our ancient stone buildings include a 2-acre Rectory garden, various cottage, formal and water gardens, and a romantic roomed garden which opens into a wild flower meadow.

Home made light lunches and Cream Teas will be on offer in the Village Hall with tea and cakes also available down at Gulley Green, and the Royal Oak will be open.

There are clear directions to the free parking and dogs on leads are permitted in some gardens (please ask the owners.)

Entry is £5.00 (children under 12 free) Tickets will be on sale at the car park in Cardington SY6 7JZ and also at Gulley Green which you will reach first should you be coming down the A49 to Leebotwood from the direction of Shrewsbury.
