2015 Pop up Garden

More than 1,000 people explored hidden horticultural gems at the annual Heatons Open Gardens celebration, an event run by the Stockport Lamplighters Rotary Club.

‘Friends’ created a ‘pop up’ garden at Heaton Chapel Station in the old station master’s yard. Many volunteered over several days to convert a scruffy yard full of rubbish into a beautiful garden, for just one day.

The charity event also saw 16 private gardens, two arts studios and Heaton School on St James Road open to the public.

The event was reported in the Manchester Evening News.
