Visitors flocked for an early summer treat as a Fylde manor house opened its gardens for the first time as part of a national charity scheme.

The mid 19th Century Warton Hall, located off Lodge Lane, has a rich history, with it first occupant Augustus Wyckham Clifton of the Clifton family of Lytham Hall.

Warton Hall has four acres of woodland garden and is currently home to Nicola Thompson, who runs an art studio in the grounds.

She and her family have been living there for nine years and have renovated the main house and the gardens, with work now continuing on adjoining cottage and the garages.

The Hall was one of 3,800 gardens around the country open to the public this weekend under the National Garden Scheme, which will see proceeds taken on the gate donated to charities supported by the scheme.

The Warton garden was open from 11am to 4pm, with activities available including painting, drawing and storytelling.

Nicola said: “I spend many hours in the garden each day and it is a place of quiet contemplation and meditation. Sharing the woodland walk with others and promoting the benefits of art and nature is something close to my heart.”
