Pickering's Pasture
Pickering's Pasture
Originally marshland where horses and cattle grazed and thousands of ducks and wading birds came to roost, this site was used for disposal of domestic and industrial waste from 1940 to the 1960's. Halton Borough Council restored the land and Pickerings Pasture was opened to the public in 1986. The reserve supports a wide range of birds, animals and insects but is particularly noted for its wildflower meadows. Taken from the car park offering views across the Mersey to Runcorn, Frodsham and Helsby hill.
