Bolesworth Castle Gardens open for NGS 10 & 11 May

10 May @ 10:00 am 5:30 pm

Mrs Barbour has asked us to publicise the NGS Open Days at the Castle 10 & 11 May
As you know, this is in aid of the various charities supported by the NGS.  If the weather’s good, there should be a lovely show of rhododendrons (pic below) plus there are refreshments.
The Rock Walk, which stretches for half a mile above the castle, offers stunning views across the Welsh Hills and Liverpool. Originally planted by Anthony Barbour in 1986, the collection has since been expanded with many new camellias, rhododendrons, azaleas, and other spring plants.
New paths have been created, and original stone features have been restored. The visit will take you up the Bridge Walk before climbing up to The Rock Walk, continuing through the castle gardens, and rounding the lake.
A single loop will see you reach 10,000 steps!
Children aged 12 and above are welcome, as are well-behaved dogs on leads (please pick up after them). Please note we regret this garden is not accessible to wheelchairs or buggies.
The Lost Barn Coffee Roasters will be onsite, selling soup, tea, coffee, and cake.
