This site is made up of two adjacent areas in the former village of Knighton. Knighton Green lies east of the churchyard along the Washbrook and includes a large area of amenity grassland, stands of trees and the banks of the stream. The local group ‘Knighton Wild’ has regular working parties here to improve the site for wildlife and also carries out wildlife recording.
The older parts of the churchyard support some old grassland species such as Oxeye Daisy and Lady’s Bedstraw and also have a good stand of old trees.
