Community Nursery Sign

We are delighted to announce that with effect from 1 April 2020, Godmanchester Town Council took over the responsibility, from Huntingdonshire District Council, of managing the Community Nursery off Park Lane, Godmanchester PE29 2AG

The nursery is a 4.5 acre site with several special gardens, an orchard, nuttery, potager, cut flower garden and vegetable garden.

The nursery manager is Oscar Jeakings but he relies on a team of volunteers to help. We operate the nursery in an environmentally friendly way by limiting the use of pesticides, composting green materials and using rain water harvested in a series of water butts. We also have a composting loo.

The nursery will be open to the public as follows:

Monday 10.00am – 3.30pm
Tuesday CLOSED
Wednesday 10.00am – 3.30pm
Thursday 10.00am – 3.30pm
Friday 10.00am – 3.30pm
Saturday 10.00am – 3.30pm


  • winter interest garden
  • colourful drought garden
  • bee friendly garden – with wheelchair accessible raised beds
  • orchard with over 20 varieties of local heritage fruit trees
  • three bee hives with an observation hide.
Things to do

  • join work parties to help with practical tasks

People of all skills and abilities are welcome to help with a variety of tasks at the nursery.
