Enjoy an afternoon strolling through Viridor Wood's peaceful grasslands and beautiful orchids

Formerly made up of the iconic Mains Colliery and a dairy farm, Viridor Wood was also part of the ancient Coffin Trail.

The woodland is interspersed with open grassland, affording some fantastic views and playing host to a wide variety of wildlife and plants including Orchids.

The lovingly hand-crafted pieces of wooden artwork dotted around the site serve to help make the wood perfect for an afternoon stroll.
