The proposal is to raise funds to introduce a more managed approach and public appreciation of this public woodland. To provide Interpretive Boards for the benefit of visitors giving the historical use of the land as a Brickworks and the History of the Civil War period. To conserve the area and encourage biodiversity through the Management of its Trees & Fauna

What we'll deliver:

  • Interpretive Boards, showing dates & images of Historical value
  • A biodiversity survey

Why it's a great idea:

Greater educational knowledge and understanding of the history of Chester itself and the local area around The Dingle To conserve the area, and to encourage biodiversity through the management of trees & fauna To enhance the natural beauty of the area and to benefit the people of Chester, local residents and visitors alike by being in a public Woodland away from the noise of traffic and an enjoyable walk into the City Centre

Steps to get it done:

  • Deliver a biodiversity survey

The Dingle is an area of public woodland covering about 10 acres. It is bounded on the on the east by the embankment of Grosvenor Road from Overleigh Roundabout to the Grade 1 listed Grosvenor Bridge. To the west by Curzon Park North from Overleigh Roundabout to the houses on Dingle Bank. To the north by the back of houses on Dingle Bank. And with access to the River Dee adjacent to the Grosvenor Bridge. The area is close to the centre of Chester but on the south side of the River Dee. The land (The Dingle) is wooded. It is crossed by numerous footpaths The footpaths are well used in the area. It offers considerable amenity value to residents and visitors to Chester alike. The area is generally woodland with self-seeded trees replacing those that fall with age. Management strategy currently by the Council is reactive only.
