Over 1200 Visitors

In two very busy days over the weekend of 9 and 10 June, our 2018 Ashton under Hill Open Gardens event attracted over 1200 visitors, an increase of almost 20% over 2017. From feedback we've received they clearly enjoyed browsing the 24 gardens and other attractions in perfect warm and sunny weather. They also appreciated the efforts of Ashton's gardeners in putting on a good show, coupled with the warm and friendly hospitality of our village.

If you were one of our visitors, thank you for your support, we hope to see you again at a future event. If you were one of the garden owners, or one of the myriad of willing helpers, thank you for helping to create such a worthwhile and successful community event.
