It's a Site for Nature Conservation and you'll see woodland areas (in the centre), big beds in the sunny areas full of shrubs, shady corners full of ferns and wilder corners where the wildlife flourishes; also a wildlife meadow in the lawned area. Look out for our wrens, blackbirds, thrushes and other birds!
