About the reserve

This small reserve is part of the much bigger Dibbinsdale woodland that runs from Clatterbridge through to Brotherton Park. Dibbinsdale is an Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), notified in 1989.

The woodland lies near to the popular Raby Mere and is separated from Thornton and Intake Wood by two roadways. As with the other two woods, the ground flora during spring is impressive with large blankets of bluebell, wood sedge and wood anemone.

Birds species too are numerous with many nesting and feeding opportunities in these well structured woodlands. Birds include great spotted woodpecker, tree sparrow and blue tit.
