Nature Reserve

The 7.5 acre Nature Reserve has been designated a Site of Interest for Nature Conservation.  We have many different habitats on this reserve.

One of our volunteers has done some excellent work monitoring butterflies and moths on the reserve, mainly on the One Acre Meadow. He also took some beautiful photographs of them. The results of his survey and photographs can be seen on his website. Please click here to see these in a new window.

Below is a map of the reserve showing the Environment Centre, which opened in May 2016 for school and other visits.  If you want a downloadable pdf showing this map, click here
