Description

This site, managed by Blaby Parish Council, includes the 'old cemetery', established in the later 19th century, which is managed as a nature area. The old cemetery is particularly good for wildlife due to its mix of meadow, trees and hedgerow.

Wildlife Highlights

The old cemetery is an excellent site for invertebrates, such as hoverflies and moths. The meadow is dominated by False Oat-grass but also supports Lady's Bedstraw, Common Knapweed, Germander Speedwell and Meadow Vetchling.
