A woodland beauty spot is set to be transformed after a £31,000 grant was approved.
Hyndburn Green Spaces Forum (HGSF) and Woodnook Residents Community Association (WRCA) have been awarded the funds to make improvements to the area off Royds Street in Woodnook, Accrington.
The works will include woodland management, native tree planting, an improved welcoming entrance from Royds Street and the installation of 15 bird nesting boxes.
Access will also be improved and a new section of woodland path will help the area link up with the wider countryside. Bosses said this will help complement recently completed work in the wider area of Bullough Park and Woodvale countryside.
Neil Mooney, chairman of HGSF, said they are ‘looking forward to making enhancements to this piece of woodland’ and encouraged people to go and explore.
Kaisse O’Neil, of the WRCA, said the funding will help to enhance the local woodland for the benefit of local residents and wildlife’.
The work is due to be completed by early Spring.
