The Great Northern Garden Build

posted: 10/05/21

The RHS Garden Bridgewater is featured in a four part documentary commencing Monday 10th May, The Great Northern Garden Build featuring our Welcome Building scheme.

The series charts the story of the creation of the RHS’s fifth showcase garden, RHS Bridgewater, with unique access to the team of designers, engineers and gardeners tasked with taking on this huge project.

The Royal Horticultural Society is the world’s leading gardening charity, inspiring passion and excellence in the science, art and practice of horticulture.

In 2015 the RHS announced a ten year, £160 million investment programme. As part of the programme it pledged to find and develop a site for a fifth garden in the north west of England. In November 2015 the RHS, in collaboration with Salford City Council and Peel Land and Property, announced the vision to create the new garden at the site of the 156 acre Worsley New Hall estate. RHS Garden Bridgewater is the largest gardening project in Europe, and will be a major new tourism and horticultural destination which aspires to welcome and inspire up to 700,000 people a year within a decade.
