Top Mill Park

Tree Planting in Lancashire at Top Mill Park

Top Mill Park is a 2.5 acre park and woodland in the Lancashire village of Bury. It is looked after by the local volunteer group, who have regenerated the park through the lockdowns of 2020/2021.

IMPORTANT VISITOR INFOTake only photos. Leave only footsteps.

To keep the woodland as natural as possible we don’t label individual trees and we ask that visitors do not place their own plaques, labels, flowers, etc in the woodland. Each tree we plant should be seen as part of a natural woodland.

Before visiting this woodland, please read our Frequently Asked Questions page, which gives you helpful tips about your tree and visitor guidance.

The local mill, built around 1860, closed in the 1920s, was then used as storage till the 1950s and later demolished.

An EU grant in the 1970s took the park to what is is today. In the early 2000s the council ran out of money and stopped managing the park and it fell into disrepair. So, during lock down 2020 / 2021 a group of local volunteers set about bringing it back to life.

There is a Brook running through the park with a small bridge spanning it.

The park has a variety of mature trees, such as Hazel, Oak and Rowan.

The newly planted saplings will improve the biodiversity of the are and provide new sources of food and shelters for local wildlife.
