Discover the woodland estate at Quarry Bank
Head out on a crisp woodland walk this autumn and discover Quarry Bank’s estate at its very best. Listen to the rustle of fallen leaves as you take in the beauty of nature’s changing colours – and don’t forget your camera!
" Autumn in the woodlands is a bustling time. Conkers drop from the horse chestnut trees, wildlife stock their larders ready for hibernation, fungi emerges after wet weather, and birds migrate overhead or join us from as far away as Russia and Iceland."
" Among the numerous private parks, gardens, and ornamental grounds, belonging to the gentry of this district, which are periodically thrown open for the gratification of the public, few are so beautiful, or so much frequented at this period of the year, as those of Mr Greg, at Styal, where the beauties of nature abound in profuseness, and the skill of the scientific gardener has been lavished with marvellous success."
