Friends of Redisher Wood

Redisher Wood Local Nature Reserve is one of the best woodland sites in the borough with Holcombe Brook flowing through the middle. The woodland areas are comprised of Oak, Birch and Beech with the understorey rich in woodland wildflowers. Redisher Wood and the surrounding area is steeped in local history, textiles and cotton manufacture were early industries in the area and the name Redisher is recorded on a map from 1797.

Various works are in progress or planned to improve the site for wildlife and recreation, co-ordinated by the Friends of Redisher Wood LNR, a group made up of local people and officers of Bury Council.
