Whinney Hill

The project is a series of habitat and access improvements to a 15.20 hectare site which includes woodlands, a meadow and a large pond on land owned by Lancashire County Council.  The site is adjacent to the Sita run landfill site at Whinney Hill in Accrington.

The project area consists of three linked woodlands, a meadow and an old pond. The site is bound by Whinney Hill Road to the North and West; Tunstall Drive, Ribbleton Drive and Ribbleton Avenue to the South and Accrington Cricket Club to the East in Accrington.

The key elements of the project are based around improving access into, and through the site, to encourage greater usage and habitat improvements to enhance the existing flora and fauna.  The site is an industrial reclamation site that was landscaped and planted with trees a number of decades ago.  The site now forms a green buffer between the landfill site at Whinney Hill and a large area of housing. 

Whinney Hill Green Space Volunteers– Working on the Lancashire Environmental Fund project for Whinney Hill volunteers will improve access into, and through the site; encourage greater usage and undertake habitat improvements to enhance the existing flora and fauna. The site is an industrial reclamation site that was landscaped and planted with trees a number of decades ago.  Volunteers will be involved in the eradication of Himalayan Balsam, installing new entrance gates, a noticeboard, bird boxes, benches, and way markers.  Contact Roger Plum if you need transport to the conservation session.
