Peartree Copse and Meadow

    Wild places

    Total species seen at this site: 6


    This woodland is largely in the City of Leicester who own it as part of the old Western Golf Course site,  but it has a much older history. A right of way along the edge of the old course runs through it and there is gated access from Peartree Close in Glenfield. There are numerous small informal paths
