The garden of 6 Grange Road, Lewes will be open as part of the National Garden Scheme’s gardens open for charity.
This hidden historic town garden was laid out in the 1930s by sisters Winifred and Olive Martin, and developed since the 1980s by the late Paul Millmore. Half an acre in size, the garden is laid out formally with brick paviour paths, perennial borders, pond, mature trees and topiary.
Now owned by Bridget Millmore, the garden continues to evolve, although structurally it has changed little over the years.
Access is via steps to a narrow cobbled passageway which opens out to reveal a truly secret garden.
A magical space in the midst of bustling urban life.
Location: 6 Grange Road, Lewes, BN7 1TR. Enter down steps between Nos. 2 and 3 Grange Road.
Admission: £3.50, children free
