Warburton's Wood

An ancient semi-natural clough woodland with a small tributary of the River Weaver

Warburton’s Wood blooms with over 50 species including wood anemone, bluebell, primrose, yellow archangel, giant bellflower, common violet and pale wood violet. To the north of the wood is an area of herb-rich unimproved grassland, which runs down to the River Weaver.  Here you’ll find primrose, lousewort, knapweed and common spotted orchid. The wood is the prefect place to take in the dawn chorus with an orchestra of woodland birds in spring and summer.
