In advance of the official opening of RHS Garden Bridgewater in June 2021, members of the Junior Gardening Club at Bridgewater School in Worsley were invited by the RHS Education Team to visit the gardens for a special preview.

The young gardeners, who were recently rewarded with over 200 new plants for their Prep Garden for achieving the RHS Level 3 School Gardening Award, were delighted to be given the opportunity to explore key learning areas within the 154-acre site.

The project, which is situated on the doorstep of Bridgewater School, has transformed the historic grounds of Worsley New Hall into a place of nature and beauty and is now open for all to enjoy.
