Wilwell Farm Cutting Nature Reserve


This abandoned railway cutting is one of the best wild flower sites in Nottinghamshire with more than 230 species so far recorded and covers approximately eight hectares. The site has been nationally designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and as a Local Nature Reserve (LNR). Spring and summer are the best times of year to enjoy the flowers and butterflies.

The reserve is just off the B680 between Ruddington and Wilford. If travelling towards Ruddington, turn onto the farm track on the right just after the Ring Road bridge. If using SatNav, enter NG2 7UT. There is limited parking space so please leave the road gate clear. If you follow the track, you will find the reserve entrance on the left past a wooded area and it is accessible via a gate or stile (SK568351).

Times and prices are subject to change. Contact venue before setting out.
