Midgley Open Gardens

'Mini' Midgley Open Gardens 2021

What?

The villagers of Midgley, near Hebden Bridge, will open their hidden gardens to visitors for one day only on Sunday 1st August 2021.

Various local gardens will be open, ranging from secluded woodlands to intimate courtyards and large country-style gardens, displaying a variety of styles from the traditional to the most contemporary designs.

This year's event is smaller in scale than usual due to ongoing Covid uncertainties, but we hope to be back up to full speed next year.

Home-made refreshments will be available at some gardens. You may wish to bring a picnic and enjoy the lovely views.

When?

Gardens will be open from 11am to 5pm on Sunday 1 August 2021.

This event usually happens every two years.

How Much?

Entrance tickets just £5.00 per adult (accompanied children are free), available from Midgley Shop or from selected sites on the day.
