Boggart Hole Clough is a large urban park in Blackley. It is part of ancient woodland, combining a number of picturesque cloughs varying from steep ravines to gentle sloping gullies. (Clough is a local dialect word for a steep sided, wooded valley). There were stories that the clough was haunted by a boggart (a mischievous spirit found mainly in Lancashire and Yorkshire), perhaps in an attempt to explain the unusual name.

The park occupies an area of approximately 190 acres, covering the full width of square SD8602, and also extending into SD8502 and SD8702 to the west and east.
