Welcome to the Fairfield Open Yardens Event!
Eighteen yardens (gardens and back yards) will be open throughout the weekend of Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th June 2022 between 1 and 4pm.
A £5 ticket (children are free) allows you to visit all the yardens over the two days. Some yardens are open on both
days, some are open on Saturday or Sunday only. See the list of open yardens, descriptions and
photographs of the yardens and a map of their locations. All proceeds to the Fairfield Association.
The theme is “gardening for wildlife”. As well as being beautiful places to visit, yardens will have one or more
wildlife-friendly features such as: ponds, pollinating flowers, nesting boxes, bird feeders, bird baths, wild areas,
meadow areas, insect hotels, hedgehog homes. Our hope is that people can share ideas and tips to improve their
own yarden. But, just as importantly, get some exercise and explore their local area.
There are yardens open all over the west of Lancaster. From Regent and Portland Street, Cromwell and Aldcliffe
Roads and into Haverbreaks. And why not visit our Aldcliffe yarden, with great views of the nature reserve fields
and the castle? There are further yardens on Abraham Heights, Fairfield and then a wildlife-friendly back yard on
Long Marsh Lane.
For some tips from the Royal Horticultural Socety, visit their webpage on wildlife-friendly gardening.
