A chance to discover the gardens of one of George Cadbury’s houses, including boating lake, walled garden and labyrinth.
Woodbrooke Study Centre was founded in 1903 by Quaker & Bournville Village Trust founder, George Cadbury. Following a campaign amongst Quaker Friends to create a permanent settlement for religious and social study, George was inspired to offer his former home for this purpose.
It is Europe’s only Quaker Study Centre and has a long and distinguished history in providing a broad-based spiritual and religious education to those of any faith from around the world. It forms part of the Cadbury legacy to future generations, based on a vision of our actions creating a better world.
Woodbrooke will be hosting an “open garden day” on 14 September when visitors can enjoy tours of our 10 acres of organically managed grounds including woodland, boating lake, walled garden and labyrinth. Tea, coffee and cake will also be available to purchase. Enjoy activities and play games.
This is event is part of Bournville Heritage Open Day on Saturday 14th September with a chance to visit a wide array of fantastic historic sites in Bournville, the garden village created by George Cadbury – for more details visit www.bvt.org.uk.
