Northern Garden


Interesting news that the Royal Horticultural Society is (with Salford Council support) creating a 63 hectare garden on the site of (the demolished) Worsley New Hall (https://www.rhs.org.uk/gardens/bridgewater/blogs/RHS-Gardens/new-rhs-garden-announced). The hall was part of the estate of the Earl of Ellesmere who built the Bridgewater canal to transport coal in the Industrial Revolution. The location, reportedly has a substantial walled garden that can be restored and an impressive array of soil types (so facilitating a wide range of plants). The garden should be an valuable amenity for the locality.
