(Average user rating: unrated unrated)

Born out of the remnants of Higher Folds and Gin Pit Collieries, amongst others.

Colliers Wood provides a mix of woodland walks and open grassland views. Some more mature woodland is also a feature.

A map of the site and a short walk can be downloaded here.

For the more sports minded visitor, there is also an orienteering course. For more details please contact the Delamere office.
