Northwich Woodlands Walks

imageA series of walks is in the process of being devised for visitors so they can familiarise themselves with Northwich Woodlands and appreciate the variety of habitats provided for wildlife.

You can find the first two walks in the newly created Category:  Northwich Woodlands Walks (on the right hand side of the screen). Take a look and you will find details for the walks.

We hope to add more walks soon.

FoAM is devising a series of walks so that Visitors to the Park can familiarise themselves with Northwich Woodlands and appreciate the variety of habitats provided for wildlife.

Some of the walks include their own map.  For those walks without a specific map, FoAM has produced a map leaflet covering the whole of the Northwich Woodlands, which you can pick up from the Rangers’ Cabin.   Alternatively, you can download FoAM’s Northwich Woodlands Map to view the map side of the leaflet on your phone/tablet or print the map side of the leaflet at A4 size.

Originally devised by Vernon Lundy, the walks have been updated by Committee Members of FoAM.  Comments and suggestions to improve the walks would be most helpful and should initially be sent to jmjeeves4867@btinternet.com.

The walks can be downloaded by clicking on the headings below.  They are designed to be printed on A4 paper and folded so that they can be carried easily.

It is hoped that more walks of varying lengths will follow shortly.
