Four gardens in Silverdale will be open to the public for the very first time in aid of Lancaster St John’s Hospice.

The Silverdale Open Gardens has 14 gardens including an ‘undiscovered’ Thomas Mawson garden.

Designed around 1927 the garden is one of the last designed by Thomas Mawson, before he died in 1933.

The landscape designer who had offices in Lancaster and London designed for a variety of people throughout the UK and the world.

Locally these included Lord Leverhulmes private gardens and Rivington gardens.

All proceeds will go to the Slyne Road hospice and the Silverdale Village Institute.

A programme will need to be purchased to enter the event.

Programmes are £3.50 each and children can go free, these are available from the Silverdale News agents or on the day at the gardens.
