Quarry Bank Gardens
Stroll around the once Tennis Lawn of the Gregs and admire their former family home, Quarry Bank House.
The Lower garden is home to the ornamental Ladies garden created by Robert Hyde Greg in the 1860s. Our gardeners keep it bursting with colour through the seasons.
Originally an orchard, Ferney Brow was planted with rhododendrons by Robert Hyde Greg to form a woodland walk to his home at Norcliffe Hall.
The Upper garden was once the Kitchen garden and provided fruit and vegetables for the Greg family. It is home to the once magnificent curvilinear glasshouses. Find out about how you can help us to restore them by sponsoring a pane here...
Quarry Bank offers a garden full of drama. Paths climb up from the valley bottom passing by caves, cliffs and amazing trees and rhododendrons. Spectacular views down to the river and across to the mill are revealed as you walk.
Have you ever taken a walk to the Upper Garden at Quarry Bank and discovered the magnificent yet derelict curvilinear glasshouse in the walled garden?
Explore the history of the glasshouse and see how we plan to restore it to its former glory.
Our volunteers uncovered this decorative dipping pond.
Created in the 1860s, this ornamental flower bed is always full of colour.

Gaze out at the picturesque view of the Lower gardens, Quarry Bank House and the Mill.
Once home to a family, a blacksmith and a hermit!
Make sure you pop up the drive and visit the Apprentice House garden, where the children who worked at the mill grew their own fruit and vegetables, as well as herbs for medicine.
