Todmorden Garden Centre

Established in 1945 by Gordon Rigg with a £150 loan for a greenhouse, a shed, a small selection of garden tools and a ¼ acre plot of land in Walsden, Gordon Rigg Garden, Home and Leisure has grown considerably, now standing on 5 acres and boasting over 60,000sq ft of shopping area, the majority of which is undercover, with free parking for approximately 300 cars.

In the scenic valley of Walsden, a branch of the Upper Calder Valley, a visit to Gordon Riggs Todmorden also makes for a great day out in the countryside that can be enjoyed by all ages.

Here we stock a wide variety of products including an extensive houseplant department as well as a huge selection of outdoor plants, trees and shrubs; a full range of garden chemicals, tools and accessories; bird care; sheds, garden sculptures, stoneware, compost and landscaping materials; a farm shop with the best local and regional products including a butchers, cheese and deli counter; a floristry department offering a personal and tailored floristry service for wedding, occasion and sympathy flowers as well as cut flowers, bouquets and arrangements; silk flowers, homeware, gifts; a pets and aquatics department with tropical, cold water and marine fish and of course pet supplies for all pets great and small; And when you’ve seen all that you’ll probably be glad of our newly opened on-site Gordons Garden Tea Rooms for a sit down and some well-deserved refreshments while you take in the view!
