Secret gardens revealed

The hidden gardens and courtyards of Wirksworth will be open to the public as part of an annual horticultural celebration.

Wirksworth Open Gardens will take place on June 9 and 10.

The event has become a must for garden lovers and those of us who just like to wander through gardens and take time to enjoy tea and biscuits.

The gardens are open from noon to 5pm on both days. Tickets cost £3.50 for adults, £3 for concessions and are free for under 16s.

They will be on sale at Orchard House, in St John’s Street, The Community Garden, and the Care Centre.

All proceeds will go to support local charities and activities involving children and young people.
