Lydney Park Gardens
Without doubt the best time to visit the gardens is during April and early May when the rhododendrons and azalias are in bloom, and the maples are in new leaf. The vision is breathtakingly beautiful. The main display is in a sheltered wooded valley with excellent landscaping, pools and dream-like pathways.
Rhododendrons and azalias are available for purchase at very reasonable prices!
Teas are available in the house on open days, and there is ample space for picnics in the Deer Park.
Lydney Park Gardens is situated on the A48 Gloucester-Chepstow road between Lydney and Aylburton.

Nearby ChurchesThe Parish Church of St. Mary:
The large tower and steepling spire of St Marys church are visible for a good distance from the town of Lydney. This large church is mostly Early English, with the tower, aisled nave and chancel dating from the 13th century. The east window and that in the south aisle contain Early English stained glass, whilst in contrast, in the north aisle is a modern window showing the Franz Joseph glacier in New Zealand. This was given in 1941 by Lord Bledisloe to commemorate his tour of duty as Governor of New Zealand.
The Church is mentioned in 13th century documents and was built in the Early English style, as was Lydney's Preaching Cross. Its monuments and inscriptions show the influence of the Bathurst family on the town from the 18th century to the present day. A full history and description of the church has been written by R A J Bell.
The daughter church of St Mary's is at Primrose Hill, erected in 1933.
In even more recent times, the Catholic Church of St. Joseph has been built at the foot of Highfield Hill.
There are also Methodist, Baptist and United Reform Churches in the town. Deprecated: mysql_escape_string(): This function is deprecated; use mysql_real_escape_string() instead. in /var/www/vhosts/fweb.org.uk/httpdocs/classes_system/generaldata.class.inc on line 613
