What is Nutsford Vale?

Nutsford Vale is a well used park and community wildlife space frequented by the residents and visitors of the Gorton, Levenshulme and Longsight areas of Manchester, nestled between Matthews Lane and Longsight Road, behind the Gorton Mount and Grange Schools.

The space has been charted through the 20th century as a farm, clay quarry and mine, unrestricted landfill site and after being covered over, an ‘open space’. The owners, Manchester City Council, spent over £600,000 of taxpayer funds to turn it into an area of recreation and wildlife preservation, encouraging the local community to take ownership and pride in their area.

A group of locals stepped in and formed The Friends of Nutsford Vale, managing this green amenity, encouraging the wildlife and developing the site for the future. Click here to find out more and get involved.
