If you are visiting this garden on Open Garden Squares Weekend, be careful to check the opening times.

Description

The Calthorpe Project Community Garden is a 1.2 acre community garden. It opened in 1984 after local people campaigned against the land being sold for development. The garden is in the process of becoming an accredited training centre, running courses in basic construction skills and gardening. It is open most of the time except Sundays and Saturday mornings.
