This is the second in a series of 10 small micro caches - you will need to bring a pen to sign the log! Go on go on go on, the view from the top is fab! it is a pretty boggy area but lovely for a walk. The series should take a couple of hours. Happy Caching!
Colliers Moss Common is part of Bold Moss Park. This common was created on the spoil and waste from the Bold Colliery and Power Station. A diverse landscape with water features (including lagoons, streams, wetland areas and a fishery), focal points, artworks, seating areas and an amphitheatre all serve to make the whole site a beautiful and peaceful place to explore as well as an important habitat for wildlife. The widespread network of paths ensures good access for walkers, cyclists and horseriders.
The remnants of mossland around the fringes of the site have been restored and areas of sphagnum moss are expanding. The site supports a range of notable species including water vole, common lizard and 16 species of dragonfly including Blacktailed Skimmer and Emperor.
There is quite a lot of water around so please be careful especially with young children.
Well done to Family Wild, 4-Goodies, Hardnut & the Amazing Gibbos on their FTF
