Open Gardens 2018
Open Gardens is now over and a big thank you to everyone who visited or volunteered. If you want to know the quiz answers, then read on !
These questions/clues have been gleaned from walking around the streets named and spotting house names, signs, or other local information. They are not necessarily in order since most roads could be approached from two directions. Some roads are intersected by others, creating the possibility that you may have to walk up and down the road to find the answers to all the clues. However, if you take the most direct route from one garden to the next you should spot the vast majority (but not all) of these answers without detours. If you don’t find them all don’t worry - it’s meant to be a bit of fun to make the walk between gardens even more interesting.
