A delightful and varied group of gardens in an historic Cathedral city: The Bishop's house is a monastic building adjoining Ely Cathedral and has mixed planting with a formal rose garden, wisteria and more. 12 & 26 Chapel Street: the former a small town garden reflecting the owners eclectic outlook, from alpine to herbaceous, all linked with a model railway! The latter is a green oasis of peace in the city. 42 Cambridge Road is a secluded town garden with interesting herbaceous borders, roses, shrubs and trees. The Bishop of Huntingdon's garden has a pond, well stocked borders, and a small orchard with mown paths. Lovely view of Ely Cathedral. Jane Frost, local environmental artist, will display and sell pieces in Bishops garden. 20% of sales to Littleport charity 'Branching Out'.
Sunday 10 June (2 - 6pm). Combined admission £5.00, children free.
