Woodlands - Northwich Woodlands


Created from what was once largely derelict land, Northwich Woodlands now provides a rich and green environment to the north of Northwich town centre. This, the flagship project of The Mersey Forest, is made up of nine countryside sites each with a different character and history. The Weaver Navigation and the Trent and Mersey canal flow through the heart of the Northwich Woodlands adding further variety to the landscape.

Trees at Hopyards Wood and Uplands can be dedicated to loved ones through the Dedicate a Tree scheme. Click here for more information. Visited this Forest Park? Let us know what you think! Send your reviews and comments to mail@merseyforest.org.uk.
