This site was originally for the Little Bentley Hall Waterways & Garden Show, but is now a Village Site for Little Bentley. The Garden Show held 6 times in the past 12 years has raised over £500,000 for local charities all thanks to Christopher & Virginia Palmer-Tomkinson with Nigel Dyson as Show Director.
You can now find the History of Little Bentley a small village in North East Essex of some 200 souls, and other details on its various pages.

Report on our 2010 Show
Little Bentley Hall Waterways & Garden Show was held again from 5th & 6th June 2010, and raised just over £85,000 for Essex Charities. Well done to everyone who attended and helped this was a wonderful result. We had approx 8,000 visitors over the weekend.
Even better in 2010 we did not receive a single Complaint from the Public or Traders. Everyone was full of praise for the layout and of course the beautiful gardens.
The Toilets were fantastic, thank you Hallmark Toilet Hire , the Food Court worked well, thank you the Garden Catering, and thank you to all the Volunteers who helped running the Afternoon Tea Garden, Art Exhibition, Antiques Valuations, Silent Auction, as well as manning the Gate, Car Parking, Cash Office etc.
