Lumb Brook Valley

UK»England»Cheshire»Warrington»Lumb Brook Valley

Lumb Brook Valley was mentioned in the Doomsday Book. There has been woodland within Lumb Brook for at least one thousand years, therefore steps are being taken to ensure the woodland survives for the benefit of future generations. A common sound to be heard in spring and early summer is the drumming of the great spotted woodpecker. The less common green woodpecker also feeds in trees but rarely, drums, and can often be seen hopping around on the woodland floor searching for ants. Its call is easily recognised as a, yaffle, or laugh like sound. Water and woodland habitats within the area provide a home for a wide variety of wildlife. Moths, butterflies, four types of bat, foxes, small mammals and over 30 bird species make the Lumb Brook Valley an exciting wildlife haven. Lumb Brook Valley is a gateway to the countryside from where you can access a well maintained footpath network. These can include short walks through Stretton, Pewterspear and Appleton Thorn or longer connections to the Bridgewater Canal, the Trans Pennine Trail or the Mersey Valley Timberland Trail.
