Meeting point - RHS Garden Bridgewater Car Park (far end). RHS Garden Bridgewater is located off the A572 Leigh Road and can be accessed via Junction 13 of the M60 via the Worsley interchange roundabouts or from the A580 East Lancashire Road via the A577 or A572 . Follow the brown signs. Turn off the A572 Leigh Road at the RHS Bridgewater traffic lights onto Occupation Road. Follow the access road down and turn left in the car park. Park in the rows furthest away from the visitor centre on the left, immediately as you turn in the car park. This is where we will meet. The car park is free. There are toilets immediately on the left as you enter the visitor centre. 

RHS Bridgewater opens at 10am. Why not combine your walk with a winter visit to the lovely RHS Garden (suggest you prebook a timeslot) & have a brew at the cafe on your return. The RHS visitor centre is open to all, not just those who have tickets to visit the garden itself. You can access the cafe, shop & garden centre without having a ticket for the garden. The walk price doesn't include access to the garden itself.
