Here are a few recent photographs of Gower Hey Woods showing the ongoing work that is being done by the Gower Hey Conservation Group. They are doing a great job with the new pond and the woods look so much cleaner and nicer.
Any idea what species of tree this is? The bark is quite distinctive .
The new pond is looking good. Such an improvement on the dank, dark wetland that stood there before the pond was made.
The entrance to the woods via the Trans Pennine trail between Stockport Road and Apethorn Lane..
Last year , after visiting the woods to see the important work done by the Conservation Group, MP Jonathan Reynolds said
"Members of the Gower Hey Wood Conservation Group have worked hard to
ensure the local community can fully appreciate the natural and
industrial heritage of the Gower Hey Wood area. And their commitment and
effort should be congratulated."
...and so say all of us !
A big thank you to everyone for their continued sterling work ! :)
