Butterfly Conservation Yorkshire are delighted to announce the beginnings of what we hope to be a long and valuable relationship with the Friends.

Opened in 1836 the gardens are owned by Sheffield Town Trust , management was passed to Sheffield Council in 1951 and the Friends were formed in 1984.The gardens now attract thousands of visitors annually and have become a cultural venue. Recently a new education centre has been built and an education officer appointed .

When restrictions ease we will be talking both to the Friends and the education officer to look at ways we can use and share this fabulous resource for many years to come. More details will follow but in the meantime follow the links and finally we would love to hear from any of our members who might be willing to join us and aid with future events in the gardens , Interested ? , please contact Paul and Ann at or see
