Feb 2019 – We have just finished thinning the western woodland at Whinney Hill in Accrington. This is the woodland closest to Whinney Hill Road. We started at the end of October 2018 and finished atthe start of February 2019. This was the first ‘thin’ of the woodland which was planted in about 1990. Trees were thinned out to favour stronger specimens and also to create space around specimen trees like Oak.
