Wisbech’s Elgood’s Brewery will be throwing open the gates to its family-owned garden this weekend to raise money for charity.

The beautiful garden at the brewery in North Brink is open on Sunday as part of this year’s National Gardens Scheme (NGS) gardens open for charity event.

Covering four acres, the garden’s backdrop design features mature specimen trees about 250 years old, including oak, variegated sycamore, beech, tulip and ginkgo.

Visitors can also see a lake, lush lawns, a rockery, herb garden and a water and grass garden, as well as a maze planted in the shape of a yard of ale and a dipping pool.

There will also be plant sales during the event and the Visitors Centre will be open selling lunches and teas, and a range of Elgood’s beers from its licensed bar.

The garden will be open on the day from 11.30am to 4.30pm. Entry charges are £3.50 for adults and children are free. For more information contact 01945 583160.
