    Description

    This reserve is owned by the Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust and covers 26.8 ha. The display of bluebells in Burrow Wood in the spring is an impressive sight  and it also has a great variety of dead wood habitats, from standing dead trees to rotting fallen trees and branches, which are important for insects.
