This was a spoil heap from Woodshaws Pit. midway between Ince and Aspull. Its still there, you can walk round it and over it. there are some great views from it. in the 50s and 60s it was just gray shale but in the past few years trees have grown on it

Tony. The hill was, and is a pit dirt heap.In the 70's it was treated, and planted with trees ext. It now looks much better, almost attractive
