This special exhibition at RHS Garden Bridgewater tells the story of the Middlewood Scout Camp, which was situated on the site of the garden from 1943 until 2016. The exhibition explores these memories with archives and reminiscences of those who spent time in the woodland campsite. With photography, films and personal stories, it offers a glimpse into a cherished past and also explains where the scouts have found a new home.
