Come and explore the heritage of Wythenshawe’s Woods and local area.

City of Trees and Wythenshawe History Group are leading an evening walk in Wythenshawe, visiting Ash Wood along the way, to explore the unique history and past life of this area. The walk will take in the sites of Elm Tree and Peel Hall Farms as well as exam-ining the local tithe maps and apportionments.

  • Meeting point—Grassy area on the corner of Simonsway and Brownley Road (opposite Robinshood Road Metro Station, M22 0DY)
  • Finishing at —Peel Hall Park

The walk is approximately 1.2km long along level ground although the route through the woodland may be slightly uneven and damp. There will be a stop at Ash Wood— time to get a hot drink and biscuit to see and hear more about the woodland and area.

Parts of the walk (through the woods) are unfortunately unsuitable for wheelchairs and mobility scooters.

Numbers of participants will be limited—to make a booking please contact Will Fitzpatrick will@cityoftrees.org.uk . We won’t be able to accommodate dogs on the walk.

The walk is part of the Woodland Futures project, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund which is celebrating the natural and social heritage of Wythenshawe.
