The Old Rectory

Back to Events page

Owner of the garden, Mrs Abel Smith, writes: “Three generations have enjoyed this garden and opened for the Red Cross. My mother-in-law’s family first came here in 1928, buying the Rectory from the Church. They inherited a riverside garden of large deciduous trees and a copious kitchen garden, which they enlarged. David and Lucy Abel Smith have replanted extensively with the help of Robert Wyatt, gardener here for over 30 years. We have retained the kitchen garden – all organic – borders and bog garden. We open every two years for Fresh Air – an outdoor sculpture exhibition, run as a charity. This is the year of the exhibition so there is a chance to see some pieces which have arrived early for the show which opens on the 16th June.”

There will be Robert’s plants for sale. All entry and plant money to go to the Red Cross.

This year we are lucky to have the Friends of Colesbourne Church to provide delicious teas and refreshments.
