Wild Mushroom image

This mushroom hunt into Broadhurst Clough is a great opportunity to see some of our fascinating native fungi. Autumn is the best time to go fungi spotting and you can expect to see a startling array of shapes and colours in the woods and green spaces in the Clough.

We found 27 different species last year, including Angels Bonnet, Common Ink Cap, Velvet Shield and Crested Coral. We also found some rarer species such as, Popular Bracket and Orange Grisette.

Join us this year and enjoy a walk round Broadhurst Clough and discover, with the help of our Fungi expert, the many different and interesting Fungi on your doorstep. 
Children must be accompanied by an adult.

Meet at Broadhurst Clough entrance, St Marys Road, near the junction  with Joyce St (Next to St Marys Nursing Home) Manchester M40 0BL

This walk involves areas with muddy and uneven surfaces – please wear suitable footwear and outdoor clothing.

Fund raising event at the car park, Broadhurst Playing Fields Moston Lane, Moston M40 5QD 

Thank you 🙂
To all who attended our car boot sale today – car booters and those on the hunt for a bargain! Great atmosphere today, wasn’t as busy as we had hoped it would be, but its the first one and a lot of great things start off small.
We are hoping to make this a regular event next year and hope to grow it into something bigger – it would be lovely to have the car booters from today joining us on the journey and hopefully we can build a nice regular local event for our community together.
