Lindow Common :: Shared Description

Lindow Common is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI citation LinkExternal link ) on the western edge of Wilmslow, it is also designated a Local Nature Reserve (LinkExternal link Natural England)

The Common was once an area of heathland, where villagers could graze their cattle, but birch trees have overrun many areas, so that much of the Common is now under tree cover.

It is believed that this is the name Lindow which is also used for one of the historic parishes of Wilmslow and the adjacent Lindow Moss, is derived from Black Lake which lies in the middle of Lindow Common. The Welsh for Black Lake is llyn ddu.

Lindow Common is now managed by Cheshire East Council.
