Explore Moston Vale
(Average user rating: unrated unrated)

Today Moston Vale is now home to a wide variety of flora and fauna, with foxes being a regular and welcome visitor.

Moston Vale, once a landfill site, has been transformed beyond recognition.

Sat within the heart of Moston and Harpurhey, Church Lane provides a mixed species woodland, wildflower meadows and even a recycled gravel footpath. A sports pitch and changing facilities for Moston Valley Football Club contribute to the area establishing itself as an invaluable recreation space.
