Easby gardens to open for Grammar School restoration fundraiser

One of the gardens at Easby near Richmond.

Four village gardens in Easby, near Richmond, and the grounds of 18th century Easby Hall will open to the public on Sunday, June 9 from 1pm to 5pm.

All money raised from the open day will go towards the £800,000 that the Richmondshire Building Preservation Trust needs to raise towards the £2.6 million project.

There are three distinctly different gardens at Easby Hall: the serene Abbey Garden, the south-facing Walled Garden and the organic vegetable Garden.

These are flanked by a short woodland walk, an orchard and a paddock. The four village gardens are delightful – with packed planting and winding paths.

Homemade cakes and other refreshments will be on sale in one of the gardens and free parking is provided in the field adjacent to the Church. Dogs are not allowed in the gardens.

Tickets are available from Castle Hill Books, Richmond, or on the day at the entrance to the gardens.

Prices are £5 adult and children under 16 free.
