Where is Nutsford Vale?

Nutsford Vale Country Park, Gorton, Manchester

Nutsford Vale is in the heart of the densely populated Gorton and Levenshulme areas of Manchester, England. The areas are suburbs of East and South Manchester between Stockport and the city centre. There are various access points with the main entrances located at the end of Bickerdike Avenue M12 5SZ and on Matthews Lane M19 3DS. Other entrances are located on Longsight Rd M18 7RA and at the junction with Kilnwick Close M18 7RY.

Nutsford Vale is a formally declared 'open space' ensuring that it remains green community space, and that it does not suffer from adverse building development. The area is a local oasis for bird life, insects and other wildlife, made up of rough grassland and a wide variety of trees, providing a home for a variety of plants and animal species.

The Friends of Nutsford Vale (FONVale) and a committee provide a management and maintenance plan for the site. Click here to find out more about FONVale.
