RHS Garden Bridgewater

Planning approval granted for Bridgewater

The RHS plan to create a stunning new 62 hectare (154 acre) garden in the heart of the North West has come a step closer with Salford City Council's granting of planning approval for the development at Worsley New Hall in Salford.

The creation of RHS Garden Bridgewater will be one of the largest gardening projects in Europe and will deliver benefits to the local community as it grows into a world-class garden. The first phase, due to open in 2019, includes the restoration of the four hectare (11 acre) Walled Kitchen Garden, one of the largest in the UK. Plans also include a new schools Learning Centre to grow young people's horticultural knowledge.
