William Champion’s Garden Website

William Champion’s Garden in Warmley, South Gloucestershire, was created by the 18th century industrialist and Quaker William Champion. It is designated Grade II on the UK Parks & Gardens Register (at risk) and is a Scheduled Ancient Monument, together with Champion’s brass mill, which houses Kingswood Heritage Museum, and his original pin factory, known as the Clock Tower. It is owned by South Gloucestershire Council.

A Friends group was established in 2020 with Kay Ross as Chairman, and Selena Gray as Treasurer, which aims to improve the site and secure the long-term future of the garden.

Over the past four years the Friends Group has obtained funding for new benches, bulb planting, a new orchard of heritage fruit trees and general maintenance of the Garden, including a Bee Bold Grant from the West of England Combined Authority (WECA).

The gardens are open all year round but the Grottoes in the garden are only open on selected dates on Sunday and Monday on the late May and August Bank Holidays and over Heritage Open Weekend. We are always keen to have additional members to join us at our regular monthly work parties. A new website for the garden has just been launched.
