In May 2019 restoration of Rhyddings Park Coach House was completed and the Kitchen Garden was created following a successful bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund. The Kitchen Garden development is run in partnership with Hyndburn Borough Council and Newground Together, which is a Community Interest Company. 2 members of staff look after the garden and facilitate community involvement.
There is a magnificent Victorian style glasshouse and a number of raised beds which are allocated to local schools. The remaining beds are for community volunteers to help grow fruit and vegetables, learn and develop their horticultural skills with trained professionals in a beautiful environment.
It’s fun and everyone is welcome in the Kitchen Garden, including our 4 legged friends.
