Acornfield Plantation

Level paths, mostly unsurfaced.

Knowsley Council: 0151 489 6000

Shown on a map of Kirkby in 1769, Acornfield Plantation is one of the few remaining woods of the original Manor of Kirkby.

Oak, birch and alder trees form the major part of the wood along with beech and Scots pine which were planted for timber production during the last century.

The lowland basin mire in the centre of the site is dominated by sphagnum moss and soft rush and is typical of how the pre-agricultural Kirkby mossland must have been.
