Adlington Hall Plant Fair
7th May @ 10:30 am - 4:00 pm£3.00
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.
There will be free guided tours of the garden by the Head Gardener throughout the day.
Back again for the 9th year, by popular demand, the Plant Hunters Fair will be held in the grounds of Cheshire’s fabulous historic Adlington Hall. Top quality nurseries, each with their own unique specialties, will ensure there will be a great variety to choose from.
Admission: £3.00, Children under 15yrs accompanied FREE (includes garden and fair).
Well behaved dogs on leads welcome.
