A Grade ll listed house with extensive landscaped gardens, gifted for the use and enjoyment of the people by Henry Charles 'Inky' Stephens of the Stephens' Ink Company.

Opening Hours

We are pleased to announce that the gardens remain open for the publicised hours until further notice or Goverment imposed restrictions cause us to take action. We are grateful to our Trustees for being available to facilitate the opening while the staff are on furlough, and to those that have volunteered to make this possible. The cafe and toilets are now closed until further notice. We will keep the opening hours under review every 7 days and look to increase as and when we have established and trained sufficient volunteer support and have enough available trustees and staff.

Please ensure that you follow all guidance in force on social distancing and numbers that may meet outdoors. Please be especially careful within the playground. Please do not use the outdoor fitness equipment.
