Breck’s Plantation Nature Reserve


Breck's Plantation is a mixed urban woodland which covers almost 2.5 hectares. Although mostly a plantation woodland, the site provides valuable habitat for wildlife and offers local residents an opportunity to experience nature right on their doorstep.

Most of the site was planted sometime between 1887 and 1901. This was later added to when the western part was planted with conifers. As a consequence the woodland is made up of small stands of oak, ash, sycamore, larch and Norway spruce.

A number of common woodland birds can be seen including all three species of woodpecker, spotted flycatcher, treecreeper, greenfinch and fieldfare. Wood mice, also butterflies and other invertebrates can be seen.

The plantation lies to the east of Clarewood Grove and access is available here (SK553332). There is an entrance opposite the playing fields on Summerwood Lane. Use NG11 9DS for SatNav.
