HIDDEN treasures in Dorridge are opening to the public this weekend.

A total of five gardens in the village will be open on Sunday (June 23) as part of the National Gardens Scheme.

The event runs from 2pm until 5.30pm, and admission is £6, with children going free. Dogs are welcome on short leads.

Coppice Wood Farm is an informal garden set in well-tended lawns with views over pastureland

At 10 Hansell Drive, the garden has been created by the owners over the last 31 years and is billed as a haven for wildlife with art work, driftwood and seaside finds.

The quarter-acre garden at 6 Rodborough Road is home to a range of flowering evergreen shrubs, acers, roses and herbaceous perennials.

The smaller garden at 14 Wyken Close is advertised as a ‘pocket sized pleasure’ and a real plant lover’s garden.

The half-acre garden at 75 Blue Lake Road is filled with topiary, deep herbaceous borders and paths leading to secret corners, including a gazebo by a large pond filled with wildlife.
