Description

Saltersford Valley is a 7 ha site in the Heart of the National Forest which has open water areas known as ‘flashes’. These result from mining subsidence that causes the Saltersford Brook to flood. There are sites planted with new native woodland and open areas managed as grassland, which feature wild flowers. The site was designated as a Local Nature Reserve in 2004.
