Birches Head & Central Forest Park

Birches Head & Central Forest Park - Faye Fawcett

A large residential area which has grown significantly in recent decades.

Houses are mainly terraced in the older part of Birches Head, with semi-detached and detached featuring on the newer estates. Several schools provide education, and there are many small businesses to be found.

Forest Park is the site of a former deep pit which is now one of Europe's largest skate parks, attracting thousands of visitors of all ages on a monthly basis.
