SJ9581 : Hase Bank Wood

near to Wood Lanes, Cheshire, Great Britain

Hase Bank Wood
Hase Bank Wood
There is a variety of habitats from pine trees to older, broad leaved woodland, along this historic path through Hase Bank Wood. There are also large areas of rhododendron which, although it looks pretty, is an alien species which competes with native plants and trees. It spreads rapidly, smothering almost everything that grows beneath it.

The National Trust, part funded by the Forestry Commission, is restoring the area to native woodland by removing the rhododendron and replanting species such as oak and ash.
Lyme Park :: SJ9682
Lyme Park is a large estate located south of Disley, Cheshire, England. It is owned and administered by the National Trust with financial support from Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council.

The estate consists of a mansion house, dating from the latter part of the 16th century, surrounded by formal gardens set within in a large park. The estate was granted to Sir Thomas Danyers in 1346 and passed to the Leghs of Lyme by marriage in 1388. It remained in their possession until 1946 when it was given to the National Trust.

The house is the largest in Cheshire, and has been designated by English Heritage as a Grade I listed building. The surrounding gardens and park are listed at Grade II* in the National Register of Historic Parks and Gardens.
