On 23rd September we will be joining forces with Redshift Radio, Mid Cheshire Hospitals and C.R.Y for Matthew to Climb Kili and raise funds by hosting a trek climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. So far we have 10 participants but we still have a couple of spaces left if you are looking for a challenge in 2017.


27th September.  Open Day at Combermere Gardens

The 27th September will see us returning again to Combermere Abbey for their Open Gardens.   This is a fantastic opportunity to stroll around the gardens and explore the ever evolving, restored 5 acre Victorian Walled Gardens of a privately owned historic estate and experience its horticultural splendour.

With stunning views of the lake through The Pleasure Garden and Garden Wood, enjoy a peaceful moment of relaxation.

The magnificently restored Glasshouse sits at the apex of the Walled Gardens within the Abbey’s Fruit Tree Maze, the only one of its kind in the world!

Light refreshments are available and there will be a plant and produce stall too, with the Abbey’s team of gardeners on hand to answer any questions.

Gates open at 1pm and close at 5pm with last admission at 4pm

Admission: Adults – £5.00, Children under 16 – £2.00

Please note that no picnics or dogs are allowed at the Garden Open Afternoons.
