Ancient Fig Garden Open Day in Tarring

Ancient Fig Garden Open Day in Tarring

 

The annual Open Day of the Ancient Fig Garden in Tarring is to be held this year on Saturday July 4th.

This is an opportunity for members of the public to view the garden, which lies within the grounds of Bishop’s Garth, South Street, Tarring, a Grade II listed building and 1 & 2 The Fig Garden, Bishop’s Close.

There is no entrance fee.

The Ancient Fig Garden will be open to the public between 10.00 am and 5.00 pm.

The fig trees are known to have existed in 1745, although local tradition suggests that they may have been originally planted much longer ago in the days of the Archbishop Thomas Becket (1120 – 1170).
