About the reserve
Moorbridge Pond is situated around the original "Bull Well", a freshwater spring, and is the last remnant of a piece of wetland formerly known as Bullwell Bogs. The marsh is dominated by greater reedmace and tufted sedge. A number of attractive plants can be found growing amongst the sedges, such as hairy willow herb.
Springfield Corner is a small triangular urban site is located in Bulwell on the opposite side of the railway/tram line to the Moorbridge Pond reserve and is designated as a Local Nature Reserve (LNR). Springfield Corner had a makeover in 2012 thanks to the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and the nature trail is now restored, access is improved, and the site has a lovely woodcarving of a frog! The path into the site walks you through both woodland and wildflower areas, and you will find a wildlife site with as many habitats as can be fitted into a small area!
