Elgood’s Brewery gardens in Wisbech open to the public on Sunday

The gardens at Elgood's in Wisbech will be opening to the public on Sunday, August 7, as part of the National Gardens Scheme.

The modern four-acre garden is based on a framework of spectacular specimen trees, mostly provided by the Peckover family.

These mature trees are survivors of the 'war effort', when the beautiful Victorian garden gave way to vegetables and then grass. Following the discovery, in 1993, of some pre-war garden photographs the garden was re-landscaped, recreating lost areas and adding new ones.

The rockery was rebuilt with its integral pond, home to great crested newts since brewery records began, and the larger lake restocked with carp.

It will be open on Sunday (1-4.30pm), admission �3. There will be teas, cafe, and brewery gift shop.
