Then (2022)

The villagers of Midgley, near Hebden Bridge, opened their hidden gardens to visitors over the weekend of 18th and 19th June 2022.

15 local gardens were 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. Many have stunning views of the Calder Valley and surrounding countryside.

We had some local artists opening their studios to visitors too.

Home-made refreshments and lunches were available at Midgley Community Room and other gardens throughout the village.
