Wheeldon Copse lies on the eastern slope of the Frodsham Hill escarpment in North Cheshire. It is just over two miles south of the town of Frodsham and about a mile to the east of the village of Alvanley. This new woodland was planted in 2003 and sown with a native wildflower mix which gives an impressive display of colour in the late spring/early summer. Public access is available from Manley Road.
