The Hall at Marthall, Sandlebridge Lane, Marthall, Knutsford, WA16 7SBRHS Bridgewater Progress and future developments Marcus Chilton Jones, Curator at RHS Bridgewater, last spoke to us in March 2018, three years before the garden eventually opened. He talked about the vision, the design and the aspirations for the garden. So much of that has come to fruition and developments have exceeded our expectations. We are delighted to be able to welcome Marcus back after five years. He will talk about developments to date, the walled garden, the streamside garden, the lake and woodland and the remarkable community development.
He will also speak about future developments, including the new arboretum, the wildflower meadow and eventually the terraces above the lake, and much more!
We had a large audience for Marcus’s original talk and we would like to see many of you there this time. We’re sure it will be inspirational!
Please book well in advance to avoid disappointment and we look forward to seeing you there.
