The Friend’s of St Mary’s are pleased to announce that Eccleston Open Gardens 2017 will take place on Sunday 23 July.  This is an opportunity to visit some of the most beautiful and well kept gardens around Eccleston.  All proceeds will go to The Friends of St Mary’s who contribute to projects supporting the  maintenance and upkeep of the Parish Church.  The fund raising is particularly to support the heritage of our ancient building rather than current faith and spiritual activities.

In 2015 we held an Open Garden event which is showcased in this book which shows stunning pictures of what to expect this year.  If you would like to purchase a copy they are still available by following this link.  www.blurb.co.uk/b/6354567-the-friends-of-st-mary-the-virgin-open-gardens-in

In 2017 we have eight wonderful gardens to visit.  We have provided a map of each with the host’s name and address so you can plan your tour.
