Garden gallivanters welcomed to Ozleworth Park on 25 June

Tuesday 30th May 2017

Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust is hosting a public open afternoon at Ozleworth Park, near Wotton-under-Edge, on Sunday 25th June from 2 – 5 pm.

Designed by Antony Young, Jane Fearnley-Whittingstall and Colin Durber, the gardens, which comprise of a rose garden, woodland, orchard and glasshouse, have been completely reconstructed over the last 25 years. They now rank amongst the most beautiful places in Gloucestershire with views out to the gently rolling hills in the south.

James Bagshaw, Fundraising Officer at Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust, says:

“Ozleworth Park is stunning and peaceful; we are extremely grateful to Mr & Mrs Andrew Stone for allowing us to invite the public to come and enjoy their gardens.”

An array of local environmentally-minded stall holders will be present selling their wares. Andrew Bullock, keen butterfly conservationist and owner of The Lavender Garden in Tetbury, will be in attendance on the day selling his very locally grown plants.

He says, “It’s an excellent opportunity to buy lavender in one of the most beautiful gardens in Gloucestershire.”

Other stall holders present will be selling printed clothing, woollen and silk products, plants and Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust’s very own fluffy animal toys!

Entrance is £5 per person and under 16’s are free; there is no need to book, just turn up on the day. All proceeds will go to Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust to support their work protecting, restoring and expanding upon the wildlife and wild places in our beautiful county.

Travelling southbound, join the B4058 from Nailsworth and then merge onto the A4135. After three miles, turn left, signposted towards Ozleworth. (Ozleworth Park, Ozleworth, Wotton-under-Edge, GL12 7QA)
