Hundreds of visitors are expected to descend on Nassington the weekend of 29th and 30th June to wander through this lovely Northamptonshire village and take a look into around 20 gardens open to visitors. The event was last held in 2017 and was a great success attracting visitors from around the region.
The event is part of the National Open Gardens initiative and since the first sign of Spring has had many of the village’s residents planting, pruning and planning for the big event. Visitors will be able to draw ideas from a wide spectrum of gardens – from courtyard to new build, from modern through to the Prebendal Manor. The Manor’s garden is understood to be Europe’s largest recreated medieval garden and has been featured on BBC2, Radio 4 and in top magazines including Country Life.
Tea, cakes and other refreshments at the village Church will keep everyone going and the day will also feature a round the village quiz and promises something for all the family.
Entry is £5 for each day for all over 16 years of age and the proceeds will be for the support of St Mary’s Church Nassington – itself expected to attract many visitors over the weekend. The gardens will be open from 1pm to 5pm each day and special car parking provision has been arranged.
Nassington will soon be laying out the chairs, putting up its parasols and throwing open its gardens.
