Trafford Ecology Park is a registered Site of Biological Importance, providing a wildlife oasis within one of Europe's oldest and largest industrial parks.
The park was originally part of the 'De Trafford' family estate but was enveloped by encroaching industry in the early 1900s.
In the following years the area was used as a tipping site by industry and partly filled with construction rubble and slag from steel works.
"I work within the Trafford Park area and find it amazing and delightful to travel down to Trafford Ecology Park in my free time to enjoy this amazing piece of natural beauty and wildlife. One would not believe this is set in the middle of what is/was an industrial estate."
Charl Van De Berg
