Cuckoo's Nook and the Dingle Local Nature Reserve

This site lies on a geological fault line that has created two completely different habitats. Cuckoo’s Nook is an ancient woodland, with holly, oak, birch and alder, and bluebells bloom every May. The Dingle is a fantastic place for a woodland walk. It contains hawthorn, ash, beech, elder and large-leaved lime trees, and the winding Longwood Brook. You might even spot a fossil in the limestone!

The horseshoe-shaped nature trail can become a circular route using Sutton Road.

Cuckoo's Nook and the Dingle is classified as a Local Nature Reserve (LNR) and a Site of Importance to Nature Conservation (SINC).


Grass walking tracks, with steps and gradients.
