middleton hall - image via Plant Hunter Fairs ©Our plant fair at this Staffordshire gem has already proved to be very popular. With entrance to the grounds, gardens, hall and plant fair all for just £2.00 we know you'll be bringing your friends and family to make a day of it. The grounds are a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) including a nine acre lake, noted Walled Garden and a children's play park. Adjacent to the grounds are the RSPB reserve, Middleton Lakes. Middleton Hall has a special place in the history of our understanding of plants. It was the home of Francis Willughby, the naturalist – an original Fellow of the Royal Society – and it was here that he brought his teacher and friend, the first great English naturalist, John Ray. Ray compiled his Catalogus Angliae here, one of the first attempts at a comprehensive listing of British plants. Today there are large and small walled gardens, herbaceous borders, orchard and sunken garden. There is an adjacent Craft Centre, with specialist shops and cafe.

Middleton Hall, Middleton, Tamworth, Staffordshire B78 2AE
