The iconic Smithills Estate is the largest site ever acquired in England by the Woodland Trust, and we haven’t even acquired the whole site yet! Steeped in history and shadowed by the famous Winter Hill TV mast, it’s a rich mosaic of grassland, moorland and bog habitats.


Many features are in need of restoration but this is still a wonderful place to visit, and over the next few years the Trust will preserve and enhance the iconic landscape for the benefit of people and wildlife.
