THE public will get a chance to view six acres of Tudor and walled gardens this weekend, when Harrington Hall opens its doors for the National Gardens Scheme.

A spokesperson said: “This very special garden incorporates approximately Tudor and C18 walled gardens, including three walled gardens, herbaceous borders and a croquet lawn leading to a viewing terrace - Tennyson’s High Hall Garden in ‘Maud’.

“Within the garden is an organic kitchen garden, shrub borders, roses, a wildlife pond and step garden. This is a garden not to be missed,” they added.

The garden will be open on Sunday, August 7 from 2pm to 5pm.

The hall is six miles north-west of Spilsby.

Admission to the event will be £3 for adults and free for children. Homemade teas and plants will be on sale. Dogs are welcome on short leads.

The National Gardens Scheme raises over £2 million every year for national nursing, gardening and other charitable causes. Go to www.ngs.org.uk for more information.
