Homer Wood has its origins through the nearby Knowsley Hall estate, which formerly owned much of the land in this area. This mature wood contains numerous ponds making it highly valuable for wildlife. A public footpath between Gellings and Pinfold Lanes connects this wood with the wider network of community woodlands within the Village. Knowsley Council would like to work with users/local residents to improve Homer Wood for wildlife and community. Contact 0151 443 2482 to get involved.
