    Description

    This is a private site comprising the offices and grounds of Leicestershire County Council. Though we usually only include sites with public access, we have included it partly because over 2,500 staff have access to the area and also because the grounds include areas of notable wildlife interest.

    Wildlife Highlights

    The mown grassland areas and specimen trees around the buildings support a number interesting fungi. Several old hedgerows also run through and around the site. A semi-natural area behind the new all-weather sports area is particularly good for insects and is the area where many of the records on this page are from.
