About Dane-in-Shaw Pasture SSSI

Dane-in-Shaw Pasture is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) due to it being a grassland of national importance. Take a walk through the Pasture in the summer and it is easy to see why this site is so important. Ox-eye Daisy, Common Spotted Orchid, Black Knapweed and many other flowers can be seen growing amongst the grasses.

Dane-in-Shaw Pasture SSSI can be accessed from the Biddulph Valley Way near the railway viaduct, from the Macclesfield Canal tow path or from the end of the cul-de-sac called Bosley View on Henshall Hall housing estate. Once on the pasture there are no surfaced paths and the terrain is sloping and uneven in parts and can become very muddy, particularly during wet winter months.
