General comments about the site

This site is an undulating former sand and gravel workings planted in 1965 by Lancashire County Council following reclamation.  The site is predominantly lodgepole pine towards the west of the woodland and broadleaf to the east.  The site adjoins the M65 making it rather noisy.  A rather isolated site.  There is a small pond on the motorway side.  The site suffers from anti-social off-road motorbikes and also has Himalayan Balsam on along the Sough Lane side.
