Three Sisters

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.
