WEDMORE’S HIDDEN GARDENSPicture of a Garden – 23rd and 24th JUNE

Wedmore is renowned amongst visitors as the Jewel of the Somerset Levels.  Visitors come for the shopping and the welcome in the village.
What they miss is the beauty and variety of the gardens which are hidden behind houses and walls, though they can occasionally be glimpsed over hedges and through gates.
On Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th June ten of those gardens will open their gates to let visitors see what lies behind the walls and hedges.  Tickets and programmes, with maps, will be on sale at St Mary’s church and at each garden from 10.30 each day.  Light lunches and wine will be served at one of the gardens and teas, coffees with cake, and ice creams will be served at the church and in another garden.  There will also be a plant stall.
Entry to all ten of the gardens is £8 per person, children free.  The gardens will be open from 10.30 am to 5 pm.
There is free parking at two car parks – one in the centre of the village, off the Cheddar Road or The Lerburne and the other at the recreation ground on the Blackford Road, close to 4 gardens in Plud Street.
The gardens which will be open are:
Bennelong House, Plud Street – lunches
