Explore Cudworth Common
(Average user rating: unrated unrated)

The site is owned by The Land Trust and managed by the Forestry Commission

Cudworth Common is a beautiful 60 hectare site on what was once the spoil heap for Grimethorpe colliery.

Cudworth Common is a wonderful site for walking, cycling, horse-riding  and wildlife watching.

The site was restored with wildlife conservation and access for the local community being priorities, and as a result the site is host to a great diversity of birds, wildflowers and insects.
