Elford Hall Gardens was opened in 2011 by Sophie, Countess of Wessex.
The Georgian Grade II listed walled garden, nestled in the village of Elford, has been brought back to life over the past few years thanks to the tireless efforts of a group of volunteers called the Elford Hall Garden Project.
During the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee weekend in June 2012, the volunteers head the news they had been awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service 2012 for their efforts.
The gardens were once part of the Elford Estate, which was given to the people of Birmingham by the village squire, F Howard Paget, in July 1936, but later fell into disrepair.
The project to restore the 400-plus yards long, 10 foot high wall and surrounding area in Elford began in 2007 and was part funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. Today the gardens are a fantastic place to visit all year round.
