Friends of Furey Wood
Furey woodlands nestles above the banks of the river Weaver with a viewing platform that allows visitors to enjoy stunning views over Northwich, the river Weaver and out towards the Cheshire plain.
The site, which holds a Green Flag award, is landscaped with a network of well-made paths that can link to Northwich town centre by foot. There is a free car park, picnic benches with disabled access and a planted woodland area with 2 recreational fields, one a wildflower meadow where in the summer evenings bats can be seen foraging. Many woodland birds can be heard throughout the site including finches, woodpeckers and a wide variety of small birds.
The car park is situated at the bottom of Beswicks Road, Winnington Hill (opposite Victoria Infirmary). Wheelchair access to amenity grassland area, viewing point and circular path (a radar key is needed). Sign posted from Northwich town centre via the river path at Town Bridge to steep steps.
