Walton Lea is a busy place! We provide work experience and learning for people 
with learning difficulties in a beautiful Victorian walled garden near Warrington.
The charity started in 1997 with just 7 people. Today we have grown and have 
70 people (across both our sites) who regularly attend at least once a week.

  • We grow fruit, vegetables and plants for sale.
  • Our shop and the garden itself are open to the public from Monday to Friday from 9.00 - 4.00pm, Saturday, Sunday and most bank holidays 10.00 - 4.00pm.
  • We make a range of wooden items - planters, bird feeders, bug boxes and bird boxes.
  • We make a wide range of craft items.
  • We help people learn and develop life, social and work skills.
  • We work with local schools to improve their outdoor environment.
  • We run workshops and learning opportunities for the public and the wider community.
At the Walton Lea Project we aim to improve the self esteem and status of adults with learning difficulties and helping them to play a full part in the local community.
