(Average user rating: unrated unrated)

Kiveton is a site of remarkable diversity.

The flat area close to the Colliery Road entrance, which includes;the amphitheatre, offers a scenic space for community events and informal play, including a new Natural Play Area.

The adjoining fishing ponds are a magnet for wildlife as well as fishermen.

As you cross the bridge and head up the zig zag path to the view point you enter a wilder area where nature thrives.

The paths on this part of the site take in both mature and new woodland, natural grassland and diverse wetland.

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