Adlington Hall Plant Fair
12th May 2019 at 10:00 am to 4:00 pm£3.00
2019 will be our 11th year at this grand venue in the heart of Cheshire and the plant fair will be held beside the house as usual and as visitors have come to expect, will feature top quality nurseries each with their own unique specialties.
Home of the Legh family since 1315, Adlington Hall is one of the oldest and most historic Cheshire houses. The 2,000 acre Estate contains parkland landscaped in the 18th century in the style of ‘Capability Brown’ complete with ha-ha. The Lime Avenue dating from 1688 is one of the oldest surviving in Britain and leads to a woodland Wilderness with winding paths, temples, bridges and follies in a rococo manner. A path through the laburnum Arcade leads into the formal Rose Garden, then on to the Maze created in English Yew. The Father Tiber water Garden provides a peaceful haven with its ponds, fountains and water cascade and the newly created parterre provides a colourful addition to the east wing. Other features include a large herbaceous border, rockeries, specimen trees, azaleas and rhododendrons.
Admission: Gardens and plant fair £3.00.
Dogs on leads welcome.
