A GARDEN that's home to more than 70 varieties of old roses is opening its gates to the public to help raise money for Dorothy House Hospice.

The roses on four-acre plot at 17th Century Cadenham Manor near Chippenham were planted by the current owner's grandmother Elizabeth Blackwell between 1945 and the millennium.

It is divided into many rooms by yew hedges and moats and features a water garden, fountains, statues and a herb garden.

Visit ngs.org.uk to book a ticket for the sessions on April 7 and June 9 between 2pm and 5pm. Admission is £10 for adults, children get in free.
