Bagthorpe Gardens are a community gardens I visited as part of the Heritage Open Day last year. They’ve been cultivated since the 1840s and have Grade II* listing with original hedging and restored bothies (a basic shelter).
I arrived in time to join on to the end of a very interesting tour of the gardens which were a lot larger than I’d imagined and encompassed the hard work that had been done by the owners and the different uses to which they’ve turned their gardens – from fruit to vegetables to chickens.
It was a very interesting insight into a part of Nottingham I hadn’t known about previously and if they open the gardens again for the Heritage Open Day I’d recommend a visit. You can find some more photos here.
