Garswood Pumpkin Patch, Wigan | Picking Pumpkins Near Me

Newton Road/Billinge Road, Garswood, Wigan WN4 0XH

Pick your own pumpkins will not be opening in 2021.

Due to the rapid change in circumstances this year we have not planted any pumpkins. We did not believe we would be able to maintain social distancing safely at our site, we were concerned about a second lockdown around the October time. We are absolutely gutted, however, we felt this was the right decision to take for the safety of our community. We hope everyone understands this decision was not taken lightly and we hope to see everyone in 2021!!Thanks
