Bring Birley Spa Gardens back to life!

This opportunity takes place on 10 Oct 2021.

Birley Spa is a hidden gem - a derelict Victorian plunge pool in its own wildlife-filled gardens! The Friends Of volunteer group want to restore it back to its former glory and are currently working on the gardens ready for Heritage Open Days. At this morning outdoor activity, you will learn about the site's history and join other volunteers to do some outdoor tasks - gardening, path clearing, and removing overgrowth. Sunday 10th October 9am - 12.30pm
