Kinson Common

A superb nature reserve nestled amongst the housing of Kinson

This nature reserve has a surprising number of habitats, including woodland, heathland, marsh and meadows.  This means it is also home to a wide range of plants and animals.

As well as the wildlife that lives on Kinson common you might also catch a glimpse of one of the grazing animals we use to help us manage the site. 

There are occasional guided walks at Kinson Common throughout the year.

Our onsite information board and has more details about this rather special nature reserve.
