Welcome to Little Ponton Hall Gardens

Little Ponton Hall and its gardens nestle in the curve of the River Witham as it winds its way through the rolling countryside of South Lincolnshire towards Lincoln.

The 18th century house, home to Mr and Mrs George McCorquodale, is surrounded by spacious lawns dominated by a 200 year old cedar tree. In the walled vegetable garden are the Victorian greenhouses and a listed dovecote. The most recent addition is the development of a herb garden.

Adjoining the garden is the tiny village church dedicated to St. Guthlac.

In the early spring, swathes of snowdrops clothe the river banks, and aconites form a golden carpet around the Church walk.

This is a magical, secret garden, rarely opened to the public.

We are delighted to be opening the Gardens on June 14th and 21st from 11am to 4pm. We are hoping that the weather is kind and you will be able to see the Roses in full bloom.

Charlotte Bronte’s masterpiece is brought vividly to life in this new stage adaptation. From the cruelty of Jane’s life as a child to the passions and mysterious secrets of her adult life, this is the story Jane Eyre, an orphan with no love or family. Only the spirit to endure and grow into a strong and independent women.

DOT Productions return in their 11th year of touring with another adaptation of a well-loved English classic. Charlotte Bronte’s bold and enduring novel is full of gothic drama and heart wrenching choices that translate onto the stage in a powerful production played out by 5 actors that is not to be missed!
