Sheffiled is one of the UK’s greenest cities. 61% of Sheffield’s entire area is green space, and a third of the city lies within the Peak District national park. There are more than 250 parks, woodlands and gardens in the city, and an estimated 2 million trees, giving Sheffield the highest ratio of trees to people of any city in Europe.

    Olmec’s Graphite Machining Workshop based in Garstang

    Our fully equipped graphite machining workshop in Garstang boasts of the highest standards.

    Garstang is the gateway to some of the finest countryside in the North West with walking routes that run through beautiful fields and woodland at the edge of the River Wyre and the picturesque Lancaster Canal.

    Once referred to as “Cherstanc” in the Domesday book, Garstang combines a happy blend of old and new with historic buildings and quaint alleyways alongside high street stores, exclusive restaurants and cosy country inns.

    Back in the 18th century Garstang was a popular stopping point for coaches en route from London to Edinburgh and the traditional market which still takes place every Thursday dates back to 1310 and the days of Edward II. With over 70 stalls lining the length of the high street it is as popular today as it has always been.

    The rural villages dotted around the outskirts of the town each have a charm and character of their own with whitewashed cottages, well kept farmhouses, country craft shops and village stores.

    Explore the area by car, bicycle or on foot or enjoy a leisurely sail along the Lancaster Canal in a beautiful barge.

    Exclusive country hotels, farmhouses and excellent caravan parks in the heart of the countryside provide a convenient base for exploring this exciting part of Wyre!
