About the reserve

Although mostly a plantation woodland, this mixed urban woodland provides a valuable habitat for wildlife. It is made up of small stands of oak, ash, sycamore, larch and Norway spruce. Ground flora is dominated by tall herbs such as nettles and rosebay willow herb. A number of common woodland birds can be seen. Although for many years the Trust managed the site under licence from Nottingham City Council as of 1st April 2018 it returned back under management with the City Council.
