Morley Open Gardens

Morley, north of Derby, Derbyshire
Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th July 2019
Saturday 11.00am to 5.00pm, Sunday 12.30pm to 5.00pm

Morley is a rural parish set on the sandstone plateau just north of Derby. It consists of a number of scattered settlements connected by lanes and field footpaths.

In our second year, a variety of large and small gardens and allotments will be open to the public, some with historical interest, one with alpacas, but all with interest for the garden lover.

Being a scattered rural village, there is the potential for keen walkers to use the field paths to move between the different settlements, but many visitors will prefer to drive, given the lack of pavements on our lanes.

The beautiful St Matthews Church and its churchyard and adjacent mausoleum will also be open for visitors. Refreshments will be available in a number of gardens throughout the village.

Proceeds in aid of St Matthews Church.
