All you need to know about Stroud’s biggest yard trail


Stroud’s biggest yard trail returns over the August Bank Holiday.

The Yard Trail Stroud promises a delightful adventure that sparks curiosity, conversations, and brings communities together. 

The event pulls people together to buy, sell or give away anything and everything from clothes, furniture and bric-a-brac to artwork and plants.

Taking place in front and back gardens across the district, the community spectacular gets underway on Bank Holiday Monday, August 28th between 10 am – 2pm.

Trainspotters Super Yard on Libby’s Drive, Stroud Rugby Club, Crown and Sceptre, and Stroud Brewery will also prove to be popular venues for shoppers to look around.

Started in 2017 by Victoria Ashcroft, the aim is to connect people to their neighbours, keep landfill to a minimum and enable anyone who wants to follow the map on the day to pick up a bargain.

Last year, more than 150 households registered as well as multi-hubs, including, Trainspotters Super Yard, Stroud Rugby Club, Crown and Sceptre, and Stroud Brewery.

“We are very excited about this year’s Yard Trail,” said organiser Victoria Ashcroft, who started the event six years ago.  

“We cannot emphasise enough about this being a community event. We would love people to stick up posters and encourage people to get involved.”
