Mayfield is a small attractive secondary woodland located in the town of Oswaldtwistle East Lancashire. The wood has one pedestrian access point which is located on the south east corner of the wood. The pedestrian access to the wood leads in from Mayfield Gardens which in turn is located off Mayfield Avenue.Prior to acquisition the wood was part of a large wooded garden belonging to Paddock House which was formerly a convent of the Sisters of Mercy. The wood still reflects its origins as part of an old garden and consists of well-spaced mature trees lime sycamore ash horse chestnut and beech dating from around 1935.'Despite its urban location the woodland feels surprisingly secluded and is popular with local dog walkers.
