Three Sisters

This natural area, bounded by Chatsworth/Rutland/Westminster and Cavendish Roads, is a jewel in our crown and a favourite spot for many locals.

Three Sisters has been classified as a site of Biological Importance due to the wide variety of life supported by the grassland, wetlands, trees and shrubs.

Surrounded by the Ellesmere Park Conservation Area, the site also contains a Roman road that linked the fort at Castlefield in Manchester with Wigan town centre.

The road was probably constructed to transport raw materials such as coal, stone and wood from the surrounding areas to Castlefield.

Despite several attempts in the past to develop the area, EPRA has maintained it over decades for local benefit, establishing it as a Local Nature Reserve in 2016, with the assistance of the City of Salford Rangers Team.
