One of the founder members of the National Gardens Scheme (NGS), Hackthorn Hall, owned by Mr and Mrs William Cracroft-Eley, opens its garden for the charity this Sunday, June 15, from 1pm to 5pm.

There are formal, woodland and productive and ornamental walled gardens surrounding the Hall and church, extending to approximately 15 acres.

Parts of the formal gardens have been designed more recently by the well-known garden designer, Bunny Guiness.

The walled garden boasts a magnificent ‘Black Hamburg’ vine, believed to be second in size to the vine at Hampton Court.

There are gravel paths and grass drives.

Admission is £3.50, children free.

Home-made teas will be available in the village hall and there will also be plants on sale.
