Brocks Hill Country Park

    Wild places

    Total species seen at this site: 483


    Brocks Hill is a relatively new country park with a large visitor centre, built as a demonstration building for environmental technologies and with a cafe, toilets and exhibition area. The park has a large pond with dipping platforms, meadows and many young trees. Though a new park, some of the grassland is older and contains a few interesting plants. Lucas's Marsh, a Wildlife Trust nature reserve, adjoins the park.
