A DOZEN of Dulverton’s secret private gardens will be open to the public for the day on Sunday, June 23.

Green fingered residents have volunteered to showcase their gardens with the town council making a donation to the local food bank from the proceeds.

Visitors to the ‘Secret Gardens of Dulverton’ will receive a map and details of the 12 gardens with their admission tickets, which are available to purchase in advance from Dulverton Post Office and the Tantivy shop and café.

All the gardens are within a comfortable walking distance of each other in the heart of Dulverton and well-behaved dogs are welcome on leads.

Tickets are £5, or £7 on the day, and free for children under 16 years.
