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 The Friends of Rhyddings Park CIO. Volunteers and a part time community gardener look after the garden and facilitate community involvement.
There is a magnificent Victorian style glasshouse and a number of raised beds. Volunteers help grow fruit and vegetables, learn and develop their horticultural skills in a beautiful environment. The is an Apiary housing Rhyddings Bees. We have the support of a Bee Keeper and volunteers are learning about Bee Keeping.
It’s fun and everyone is welcome in the Kitchen Garden, including our 4 legged friends.
