Following the recent tradition, the extensive gardens of The Grange Resettlement Unit, the open prison at HMP Hewell, will be opened to the public on the Spring Bank Holiday weekend of Saturday 23rd  and Sunday 24th May at 10:30-15:30 each day.

This event has been a tremendous success in previous years and gives members of the public a rare opportunity to view these beautiful landscaped gardens and lake. In keeping with earlier years visitors will be able to buy cream teas  and coffee served by the prisoner, who will also act as your guides around the grounds.

If you wish to see the gardens you must register with the Historic Garden Trust (www.hgt.co.uk) or call 01234.567.890. The Hewell Farm shop, which sells vegetables and plants grown in the prison grounds will be open during your visit for you to buy delicious home-grown produce.

    1. Hi,
      DoingTime has no connection with HMPPS, it merely tries to give factual and unbiased information to those affected by crime and the criminal justice system.
      I have been around the gardens and they are well worth a visit. No information as to whether they will be open has been announced so far. However, on a pessimistic note the hosts who showed visitors around previously were Cat D prisoners from HMP The Grange, some of whom worked on the gardens, and this prison has now been shut with the inmates transfered elsewhere within the system. It is unlikely that HMP Hewell would allow their inmates to act as guides.
