Grappenhall Heys Walled Garden was created by a wealthy Warrington banker, Thomas Parr, around 1830 when he built a new house and estate for his family.
Today, the walled garden consists of two main areas, the fully working kitchen garden and the ornamental pleasure garden which are separated by a yew hedge.
This place makes for a wonderful free day out activity. Just click through to the website to check opening times and travel advice. It's worth noting there are deep ponds in one of the gardens, so take care if you're visiting with children.
