Weatherstones Wood is very secluded with a real mix of different tree species. A large proportion of the wood contains mature Scots pine that are well-spaced. On closer inspection there is an understory of young oak, ash, holly, hazel, silver birch and rowan. In the summer months, when the leaves are in full bloom, there is a great sense of seclusion and privacy. There are also some mature beech trees that are scattered through the woodland. In a few of the beech-tree areas there is a potential to create a camping area or simply an area for carrying out woodland related activities.

You can see and hear buzzards, barn owls, ravens and woodpeckers and in the lower canopy of young broadleaf you can find many songbirds and other birds such as jay, woodcock and pheasant.

The wood is very flat with both woodland and fields bordering the edges. There is a lot of sandstone here which was used to create the main track to Weatherstones Wood. The main track that leads to the wood was originally created in the 1600s for the local residents to walk to St Nicholas Parish Church in Burton.

Nearby there are the Ness Botanical Gardens, next to the village of Burton, where there is also an RSPB nature reserve. Birkenhead and Liverpool are only a few miles away.

There is a covenant, click here to read, on the woodland designed to ensure the quiet and peaceful enjoyment of this and adjoining woodland.
