Rilshaw Meadows are an area of natural beauty which have been used by the local community for well over a century. The space is made up of four main landscapes: a woodland, a grassland area, hedgerow and the margins of an area of water known as ‘Bottom Flash’. It provides access to farmland at the edge of the Flash beyond the built-up edge of Winsford. The farm land is accessed over a musical stile made by children at a local school. The space is used for activities including fishing, walking, running and ball games.

During World War I the land was used to breed horses which were sent to France, as well as being used for recreation by returning soldiers after the Armistice.
