Welcome to our Gardens

Welcome to the 2024 season at Westonbury Mill. We have been busy through the closed season with the major maintenance works being the replacement of all the wooden boards along the sides of the leat and the creation of a new bridge, as well as repairs to several of the existing bridges. We also completed repairs to the Water Tower. 

Last year, we announced the start of work on new gardens on the land in front of the café and that we had planted about 200 trees. This work has continued during this winter and we now have 420 trees planted as well as 200 hedging plants. The Japanese Tea House has advanced but not yet completed as storm Henk flooded it and therefore it needs to be raised up before we can add the glass and complete it.

We have taken the decision to hold our entrance fees for 2024 from last year. Indeed, this is the third year running they have not risen and, in fact, they remain lower than when we took over in 2021. The major reason why we have held our fees is to reflect that we are having some major construction works undertaken on the house that will last for most of the season and this may cause some inconvenience to our visitors at some stage.

We will do everything to minimise this disruption and we look forward to meeting you at some time during the season.
