The grounds of Fonthill Old Abbey will be open on Sundays 30th April and 14th May (from 10.00am – 5.00pm) in aid of Parkinson’s Cure and local charities (the parish churches of Hindon and Fonthill Gifford and Hindon Village School).
Visitors (including dogs on leads) are invited to take a good hike or gentle stroll through the woods and around the lake. (Some paths are steep and rugged). The bluebells should be at their best on 30th April and rhododendrons on 14th May. There will be books to browse explaining the history of the estate.
Homemade cakes and soup, and Buttling’s prize-winning bangers on the barbecue, together with tea and coffee will be available.
Unfortunately, in the event of high winds, if Stourhead NT closes, then the Fonthill grounds will also close. Please check the Stourhead NT website.
Entrance SP3 6SP on the Hindon Newtown lane. Donations (suggest £8). Please bring cash.
