Description

Dedicated to the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers this memorial forest was opened by the Worshipful the Mayor of Bury and the Lord Lieutenant of Greater Manchester 24th April 2010 the same day that the Regiment celebrates the battle honour, of Gallipoli won during World War I and the Regimental Birthday Celebrations.
A copse of mixed Fruit Trees have been planted as a Memorial Orchard dedicated to those Fusiliers that have lost their lives whilst serving in Iraq, Afghanistan, Northern Ireland and other conflicts since the end of World War II.

 


The whole of the site has been enclosed with post-and rail fencing which will eventually be replaced by a wildlife friendly and pollinating hedge which has been planted by local schools and community groups as part of the ‘Friends of the Forest’ scheme.

 


It Is anticipated that the small number of woodland benches will be donated and installed along the stone pathway which runs through the site and thus adding value and appeal to this beautiful location.
