Nassington Open Gardens



Nassington Village


Hundreds of visitors are expected to descend on Nassington the weekend of 24th and 25th June to wander through this lovely Northamptonshire village and take a look into the 20 plus gardens open to visitors.

The event is part of the National Open Gardens initiative and for weeks has had many of the village’s 800 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 hall will keep everyone going and the day will also feature a craft fair 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.
