Malton Castle Garden
The Castle Garden is a five acre public park situated in the market towns of Malton and Norton. The Garden is a scheduled ancient monument site with evidence of remains of a Roman fort, Malton Castle and a Jacobean Prodigy House underlying the ground.
The park is a natural area with large areas of wildlife habitat, but with a central lawned area surrounded by more formal paths and seating where visitors can relax just minutes from the busy town centre. There is also a woodland walk through one side of the garden amongst the many ancient deciduous trees that thrive in the park.
The garden also feature two open air classrooms with huge tables made by local craftsman Mark Bennett from massive slices of oak from nearby Ampleforth. Benches are attached to the tables making them ideal for school work or a picnic.
The Castle Garden is open every day during the summer months and at weekend during the winter. It is also available to hire by other community groups who want to run events in this beautiful venue.
The Derwent Riverside Project who manage the Castle Garden hope to run events in the park such as rural crafts events, music and theatre.
The Castle Garden is run entirely by volunteers and we are always looking for new people who would like to offer their time for a few hours to do a bit of work on the site or help out with organising events.
If you would like to get involved please contact Di Keal on 01653 694546 or email@example.com
