We now have a plan for improving Chapelfield Nature Reserve. You can click on the image below to enlarge the picture and take a look at all the potential changes. Suggestions include footpath improvements, installing a boardwalk over boggy areas, treating Japanese Knotweed, removing debris, planting fruit trees and work to make the entrances more welcoming to visitors. It would be really helpful for us to get your thoughts about the proposals before the plan is finalised. You can do this by completing this very short survey: Chapelfield Survey. It only takes a couple of minutes to complete, but it would be great to get your feedback.

Thank you for taking the time to help with this – we’ll be in touch again in the new year to confirm next steps.

Chapelfield Nature Reserve is a lovely spot serving communities in Radcliffe and Whitefield. All natural spaces need a little management from time to time to ensure the nature there can thrive and people can fully appreciate its potential and diversity. Over the coming year or two we will be working with Bury Council to identify areas of improvement such as footpath improvements, woodland management and debris clearance. If you are interested in this project please feel free to get in touch.
