Battling the Birch Three


Lindow Common is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) which means we have to manage it to maintain its special heathland qualities. Unless we manage the self-seeding trees, the area will quickly revert to woodland and not the endangered lowland heathland we are protecting.

Help the rangers to clear the birch trees from the site and make birch bundles for use on other sites as riverbank protection. All equipment is provided but please bring gloves and wear sturdy boots as the terrain is rough.

Booking in advance is essential. Suitable for anyone over the age of 10.


Time: 10:00amĀ - 3:00pm.

Leader(s): Bollin Valley Partnership Ranger Nik Ginn
