Where the A58 and A6 cross, between junction 5 and Westhoughton, Wingates and Hulton Lane Ends. This former mining areas name is thought to be derived from Saxon 'Ceacca' and Old English 'beonet', bent, a coarse moorland grass. The first part could also have been derived from the Old English 'ceacce', Old English for a hillock.

This narrow mixed woodland leads down to Daisy Hill. The 1849 Ordnance Survey Map shows a moated site on the south side of Park Road, east of the brook. All traces of the moat have gone, as well as the remains of the Hall and Lee Hall Farm. This could have been the site of the "Abbey's Grange by Conware". It was an ancient site and a house of significant importance.
