Woodland Planting Day

Countess of Chester Country Park

21st January 2017 : 11am-3pm

Planting of a wet woodland native species in a disused wet grassland at Countess of Chester Country Park.

We will be planting native species trees into another area of the park to create a further area of woodland on the park.

This will provide an area with numerous trees that will help soak up excess rainfall that finds its way into Finchett’s Gutter and then into Chester. This will go a long way to help Chester’s flood defences.


Clothes you don't mind getting dirty, gloves, sturdy footwear and a spade if you have one.

Toilets are available at the Countess of Chester Hospital's Oasis café.

Parking is available at the car park on Countess Crescent and participants need to follow the arrows to the planting area from there.

Good tarmac footpaths lead to the area but people with mobility problems will find it hard to plant in the area.

Parking is available at the car park on Countess Crescent.
