Haddington Garden Trust


Haddington Garden Trust (HGT) was established in 1972 by the 14th Duke of Hamilton. The Trust is responsible for the garden, which is known as St. Mary's Pleasance.

The Trust's Aims (stated in the Deed of 1972) are: "to preserve the garden as an open precinct to enhance the environment of St. Mary's Church and Haddington House, and for the enjoyment in all times coming of members of the public, and to encourage the study of Old Scottish Gardens and gardening methods." These aims form the basis of the garden management for the public today.
