THE DEANS GARDEN FEATURES FOR NGS - GARDENS OPEN FOR CHARITY

The Deanery garden at Ely Cathedral is the newest attraction of the National Garden Schemes open weekend. The secluded walled garden is rarely on view to the public and forms part of the medieval monastic precinct which surrounds the Cathedral and which remain some of the oldest inhabited buildings still in use in the UK.

The garden features a large lawn area with a small orchard, lavender hedging, developing boarders and formal seating areas. In addition this beautiful garden boasts one of the best vistas in Ely - overlooking the Dean's meadow on one side and an unparalleled view of the East End of Ely Cathedral on the other.

The Dean's garden is one of four gardens open to the public next Sunday afternoon, 12 June, as part of the NGS. One of the other gardens is the ever popular Bishop's House. There is a combined admissions fee of £5 and children are free. The NGS is the most significant charitable funder of nursing in the UK. The principal beneficiaries being Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie and Hospices UK.
