Temple Village Gardens, Near Gorebridge, Midlothian

Temple is taking part in the Scotland’s Open Gardens scheme again this year, Sunday 10 June, 2pm – 5pm.

Situated on the east bank of the River South Esk, to the south west of Gorebridge, Temple Village is one of Midlothian’s most attractive and historic conservation villages.

Between the 12th and 14th centuries Temple was the headquarters of the Knights Templar, more recently the village has been home to Sir William Gillies the famous Scottish painter. A number of village gardens will be open, from the charming riverside garden of The Mill House, to the delightful front and rear gardens of some of the village houses on the Main Street.

Planted in a variety of different styles, they display contrasting designs and plant combinations, reflecting the villager’s many distinctive horticultural interests.

Admission is £5.00 and there will be teas/coffees and home baking for sale in Temple Village Hall, as well as children’s activities.
