Hidden Gardens Revealed

This weekend (4-5 June) Sherborne’s Hidden Gardens were once again open to the public.

Organised by the Rotary Club of Sherborne Castles in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care and Weldmar Hospicecare Trust, 19 gardens were opened to visitors.

Hidden Gardens of Sherborne

This weekend is when residents of the town open their gardens to the public in aid of charity.

Sherborne has many town houses that have no front gardens, but when you get round the back some beautiful (if sometimes unexpected) sights can meet the eye:
