Bolton Road, Ashton in Makerfield, Wigan. WN4 8TL
From Colliery to Community Woodland, Viridor Wood is a great place to visit. The site has some older trees, some new woodland and some large open spaces. There are great views across Wigan, and some inspiring sculptures, created by artist and chainsaw sculptor Richard Caink, making this site an interesting place to visit. Viridor links in to the Three Sisters Country Park and the Leeds & Liverpool Canal, so there are opportunities for making this a longer day out. There is car parking available at this site, with a height restriction. This site is great for birds with sightings of skylark, lapwing, tawny owls, little owls, buzzards and more.
