Features and attractions

  • Broadleaved woodland
  • Parking less than 500m away

This small narrow strip of broadleaved woodland is a hidden gem on the outskirts of Runcorn. It’s a great place to have a wander amongst mature oak, sycamore, Norway maple and silver birch trees. The woodland floor is carpeted with wildflowers (particularly bluebells and ramsons) in spring, and its varied tree species create some stunning autumn colour.
