Be at one with nature

Eatock Lodge Local Nature Reserve is only 5 minutes by car from Westhoughton, where kids can explore woodlands and spot interesting wildlife and wildflowers around the various ponds. Previously this site was occupied by Eatock Lodge Colliery which was closed back in 1934 and you can still see the pit lodge and spoil heaps as a reminder of this industrial history. This is a great walk, easily access for parking and is free of charge to the general public.
