Created from what was once largely derelict land, Northwich Woodlands now provides a rich and green environment to the north of Northwich Town centre. 

Northwich Woodlands is made up of nine countryside sites, each with a different character and history.  The Weaver Navigation and the Trent and Mersey Canal flow through the heart of the Woodlands adding further variety to the landscape. 

The rich variety of habitats to be found within Northwich Woodlands is home to many forms of wildlife. 

To help visitors explore the range of flora and fauna which can be found, FoAM is making the following resources and information available:
