Smithills Tree ID Walk

We’ve got a wonderful variety of trees in our woodlands at Smithills, with areas of semi-natural ancient woodland alongside more recent broadleaf woodland. Come and join us for a woodland walk with a focus – how do we tell our tree species apart?

This walk will help to learn how to tell your oak from your alder, and your hazel from your hawthorn!

This walk will begin from Barrow Bridge Car Park and we will last for approximately one hour in total.
The route is mostly on good footpaths but there will be some uneven ground there will also be some steps to walk up.

Well-behaved dogs are welcome to join us, but please keep your dog on a lead throughout the walk.
Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult

Walk repeats at 2-3pm.
