Set within the foothills of Winter Hill, on clear days Horrocks Wood has views to Jodrell Bank Observatory and beyond. A number of paths link together areas of open grassland and young woodland across this hillside site. The young trees give some great displays in autumn, and at dusk you may well see hunting barn owls. There is a car park but watch out for the potholes! www.forestry.gov.uk/northwestengland
