Young Archaeology Enthusiasts Strike Gold In Marton cum Grafton.

Open Gardens Marton Cum Grafton

6:02am 23rd June 2013

Some North Yorkshire children have been enjoying history lessons with a difference.

They've taken part in Marton cum Grafton's latest archaeology project which has unearthed remains from the old primary school.

Today's Open Gardens event will show off their discoveries.

It also offers a rare opportunity to explore the secrets of the hidden and private gardens of this charming village. They come in all shapes and sizes and the village’s elevated position allows for spectacular views over to the Dales (west) and White Horse (east).

With over 15 gardens open between 11.00am-5.00pm, visitors can explore the picturesque village. 

Other entertainment includes a local art and crafts exhibition, refreshments, a floral display in Christ Church along with plenty of village fete style fun and games on Grafton Green.

A courtesy bus service is provided, taking people from one end of the village to the other.  Car parking is on offer and wheel chair access is available to many of the gardens.

All proceeds from the event will go towards community projects - adults £5.00, children free.  Marton-cum-Grafton is conveniently situated between York, Harrogate and Boroughbridge; just off the A168 (junction 47 or 48 of the A1).
