Explore Dinnington Community Woodland
(Average user rating: 5 unrated 5/5)

 

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

Dinnington is fast gaining a reputation for its birdlife, over 50 species have been seen in a single day.

There is a bird hide overlooking the wetland area so you can see what interesting birds are visiting the site.

Close to the local community this woodland and wetland area is full of newly planted trees and wildflowers.

The woodland is fantastic for an evening walk or an afternoon out with the family for fun and picnics.

Walked over the " old Pit Tip" 24th June 2015. Just amazing. Mo one would know what it used to be. We didn't get up to the top, but walked along a lower path from Greenlands school over towards Church Lane. There were ox eye daisies, buttercups, elderflower, wild roses etc and pyramidal orchids beside the path for most of the way.

A big thank you to all the people who work to keep it so lovely.
