Explore Three Sisters 

Three Sisters is a visitors attraction where the Carbon Landscape story is told in an inspiring way.

New wheelchair-friendly trails with heritage audios, wildlife rubbings and an enchanted tree trail were installed in 2020.  This beautiful place has a much celebrated lakeside circular route, bird feeding station, pond dipping and bird hide over the wider wetlands to allow you to get a closer view of the magnificent wildlife where you may get the chance to view Goosanders, Mute Swans, Grey Heron and Kingfisher. This diverse place is home to a national rare bird called the willow tit.  

The site is the former Garswood Hall Collieries and the Three Sisters were the spoil heaps. The site is owned by Wigan Council and has an active Friends group and "the Hamlet" with the Nest Cafe and Lakeside Printing. Please check cafe opening times.
