A tranquil green corridor link through the Irk River Valley, taking you from the edge of Collyhurst to the heart of Harpurhey.
One of our first environmental landscaping developments, these sites are a composite of river-side walks, amenity grass, open meadow grassland and mixed woodland with the odd Fig tree left as a remnant of the industrial revolution. The composite of this habitat ensures the wildlife, which frequents the site, is wild and varied.
