Rock Mill, Powys: a reclaimed riverside

Established across an old railway line, Rock Mill in Powys is an enchanting garden, where remnants of its industrial past combine with soft summer colours to create a garden like no other.

Join Garden Owners, Rufus and Cherry for a stroll through Rock Mill, and discover the fascinating history within its walls.

A closer look…

There is a sense of adventure in Rock Mill. There is something to find around each corner, whether it’s the next clue in the animal trail for children or hints at the old railway line which once swept through the garden.

This fun is combined with elegant borders and colorful shrubberies, carefully planted by Rufus and Cherry, to create a garden which one cannot resist returning to year after year.

Be sure to visit Rock Mill when garden gates reopen.
