Nature Conservation

Formerly a drift mine, landscaped in 1991 and transformed into a country park consisting of wide open spaces, woodland, amenity grassland and ponds, managed to protect and improve its habitats for the benefit of wildlife.

Water vole have been recorded on the park in the past and Skylarks, Buzzards and Meadow pipit are often seen here. It is a valuable wildflower site for the south-east of the district and the ponds are home to a variety of dragonflies.
