Sports, leisure and the Arts Tweedle Common and French Barn Lane

Tweedle Common is a former landfill site that has been reclaimed as open space. It sits north of Plant Hill Road adjacent to Plant Hill School. It is characterised by relatively flat grass land and some tree planting.

Westwards from Plant Hill Park is an expanse of three natural open spaces split by French Barn Lane and Chapel Lane. Together with Tweedle Common, these areas give an attractive and distinctive character to the whole Higher Blackley Area. All three sites are relatively well connected and enclosed on all sides by urban development.
