Acton Open Gardens

This event is now over.

We are pleased to open 15 village gardens over the weekend. All are available on both days. They vary from the garden of a 16th century thatched cottage, to a recently occupied new build, with a range of mature gardens in a wide variety of styles. Visitors will also have the chance to visit the Church with “The best Military Brass in England”- Sir Robert de Bures as well as others, including Lady Alice de Bryern. It also has the Jennens Memorial, a magnificent 18th Century sculpture for the founder of the fortune behind true story that inspired “Jarndyce v Jarndyce” in Dickens’ Bleak House. Entrance is by programme, £5 for the two days. All profits going to All Saints Church.

Details are available on the Church website, www.allsaintschurchacton.vpweb.co.uk and also at www.opengardens.co.uk (Search for Acton)
