Covid-19 latest update for Rivington Terraced Gardens

13th January 2021

The Terraced Gardens remain open and the staff team continue to undertake essential maintenance works.

Sadly all our events and volunteering is on hold given the current lockdown and we ask that only those who live locally travel to the Gardens as well as maintain social distancing and respect the current government guidelines at all times.

A few things to note:

  • The Toilets at the Great House Barn Information Centre are open with guidance for visitors.
  • All of the car parks in the area are open.
  • We have experienced a great amount of traffic and demand for car parking spaces lately – especially at weekends. We encourage you to try to visit at quieter times if possible.

These are difficult times, but access to wonderful green spaces makes life easier and the end is – hopefully – in sight.

We need to raise £100,000 a year to maintain the gardens, and without Events and Open days, we will really struggle.
