Woodford’s Nature Reserve
The Pocket Park is Woodford’s 17.25 acre nature reserve. It is made up of three disused railway cuttings and is managed to provide a rich range of plants and habitats for local wildlife.
Some of the birds seen in the park include the Green Woodpecker, Fieldfare, Whitethroat and both Tawny and Little Owls. Badgers and fox are seen too and the park is home to some less common butterflies and plants.
Here’s a gallery of pictures from June 2013.
The Park is managed by volunteers of the Wildlife Trust. Access is via the track leading to Dairy Farm off of the Woodford Halse to Eydon road (there is a car park here) or on foot from the Jurassic Way long distance footpath.
