Scrivens Conduit, Hillfield Gardens

Book Tickets Online


Hillfield Gardens was originally developed as the grounds of the elaborate Victorian Hillfield House built around 1867-9, replacing an earlier house from 1826 (known as Woodbine Hill). The garden contains three mature Redwood trees, a champion oak and some of the oldest trees in Gloucester. The park was opened to the public around 1933 and is home to three monuments of historical significance: Scriven's Conduit, the King's Board and the chancel of the 12th century leper chapel of St May Magdalene. The remnants of a Roman road have been unearthed during a recent archaeological dig.

The Friends of Hillfield Gardens group was formed in 2005, and working with the City Council and local organisations, they have spearheaded the recent improvements to the gardens, which have led to increased public use. In addition to this musical events are held in the gardens every year as part of the Summer in Gloucester festivities.
