Greater Manchester Woodlands

Livia, Sherwood PinesWigan, Salford, Bolton, Bury, Rochdale and Manchester all play host to woodlands managed by the Forestry Commission.  Most of the woods were planted on former industrial sites and as a result, most have a rich historical past.

Not since before the industrial revolution have woods and woodland culture reached so far into urban centres as they do today.  A new generation now has the opportunity to become part of this re-imagined forest culture.
