Thought it was in Shevie
Your right Alan its mostly in Shevy and it was always know as Mill Dam wood until they built them new houses
No doubt about it there is some beautiful countryside around Wigan.
The Mill Brook running through the valley in the heart of the woods is the boundary between Standish and Shevington - I took this pic on the Standish side, approaching from the track north of Standish Hall Farm.
From the map, it looks as if more of what is now known as Elnup Woods is in Standish than in Shevington. Not that I'd fight over it.
Thanks Mick and David ,we learn something every day .
