RHS Bridgewater

A new RHS garden opened this year called Bridgewater as it is by the Bridgewater canal near Salford. It was delayed a year due to Covid but this possibly helped it become more established. I’ve visited twice so far. Once with Graham and once with a friend and neighbour from Sedbergh. It was lovely to see how much changed even just over a couple of weeks.
Graham and I have both joined the RHS and so we intend to visit several more times and see how it develops. The first time we visited we were interviewed for a programme on the BBC. I don’t know if it’s been on yet but I think our bit will be on the cutting room floor as we weren’t very lively!

I took lots of photos of course and have done a pastel drawing from one of them. It is inspired by the Chinese water garden which was my favourite part.
