A NORTH Yorkshire stately home will open its gardens for charity on Sunday.

Norton Conyers House, four miles north of Ripon, will be open from 2pm to 4.30pm by kind invitation of Sir James and Lady Graham. The event will support patient care at St Michael’s Hospice in Harrogate.

The hall’s grounds boast beautiful walled gardens, and there will be home-made teas available in the orangery, a plant sale, and games on the lawn.

There is wheelchair and pushchair access, and dogs on leads are welcome.
