Lyme & Wood Country Park, located between Earlestown and Haydock, consists of 274 acres with 180,000 trees planted.
The country park was originally two coal mines, and their legacy remains as both Wood Pit Colliery and Lyme Colliery mines were the inspiration for the park’s name.
The landfill was completed in 2019 and since then, volunteers have been contributing to the site’s developments to achieve a biodiversity park for a greener area.
