Prestolee Pocket Park 22nd November 2020
Prestolee Pocket Park, or Stoneclough Community Woodland to its friends, is a small patch of land between a housing estate, Trinity Church, and Prestolee Primary School that had been forgotten and ignored for years. That was until the Manchester, Bolton and Bury Canal Society (MBBCS) decided to do something with it.
See the Hey,Presto-lee blog for more info.
This is our last visit to Prestolee Pocket Park for this year. Autumn and winter are the best times for tidying up woodlands as birds have finished nesting and most of the leaves are off the trees. Most of today’s work involved cutting branches that were overhanging the footpath, or were unsafe, we also cleared the paths of fallen leaves and trimmed back the hedges to improve access.
Although not the best of conservation tasks it was still good to get out and do something positive. Here’s some photos.
