Had a great afternoon in Viridor Wood and Three sisters, near Ashton in Makerfield today. These are two areas reclaimed for nature by the forestry commission and others bodies. There used to be a colliery on the land but now there is a huge recreational area with woodland walks and even a lake which was covered in Canada Geese when we visited. There were lots of people enjoying the fresh autumn afternoon and we took lots of pix of the autumn colours.. including this one ... which we thought had unusual colours for autumn. The delightful name Three sisters has been retained but the original sisters were slag heaps from the pit!
