Griffin Wood is a lovely area of mixed aged woodland and wildflower meadows located in Bold Forest Park. It is part of The Mersey Forest. The area was originally handed to The Mersey Forest by the Community Forest Trust for the purpose of replanting the area with trees.

This site is ideal for planting memorial trees, which will only add to the splendour of the landscape. The planting area is located amongst a woodland which was planted in 2007 with the participation of the local community.

The area has proliferations of mixed wildflowers throughout the whole site that creates a carpet of colour during the spring and summer months. The area is renowned for its variety of wildlife and butterflies and sits next to farmland, adding a rural atmosphere for visitors to enjoy.

The woodland can be accessed on foot from Clock Face Country Park (approximately 25 min walk) or by car through the entrance off Hall Lane, where in partnership with the Mersey Forest Team, Life for a Life has restored a small car park inside the site for client use only.

Life for a Life planting areas are natural environments where we encourage wildlife and plant life to flourish, as such additional items should not be added to the tree or the space around it, especially as they can cause damage to the tree. Please be aware that any prohibited items left on or around memorial trees will be removed.
