Welcome to the web-site of the Lingfield Nature Reserves. We hope that you enjoy browsing our web-site and, even more, that you enjoy looking around our nature reserves, which are only the 2nd village-based reserve in the country to be awarded LNR (Local Nature Reserve) status by English Nature.

The reserves occupy a 26-acre site and are a mixture of meadows, hedges, and woodland copses and also boast a wetland area with a number of ponds and small pools, an orchard, a wildflower meadow and a butterfly garden. The reserves are managed in such a way as to gain maximum benefit for the flora and fauna, with increased biodiversity very much in mind.

Management and administration of the reserves is undertaken by a team of volunteers and, as such, we are always on the look-out for a bit more help - both in terms of expertise and manpower. If you are interested in helping to look after this wonderful local resource, why not come along to our regular work parties, which are usually held once a month, and if you have any particular knowledge of any aspect of wildlife or habitat management, we would be particularly interested in hearing from you.

Access to the reserves is free and open to all, and a network of both hard-standing and grass paths makes it suitable for pushchairs and wheelchair users.

 

Latest news .....

We are applying for two exciting, competitive grant awards for new wildlife habitats and infrastructure projects.   These are with The Community Foundation for Surrey and Surrey County Council.   We are hopeful of being successful when judging takes place in the summer and then enlist the help of the local community.

 

imageLingfield Nature Reserves were delighted to be chosen by the Co-op as one of the community groups to benefit from their local community fund during 2019/20.  In total, £1715 was raised by Co-op members who selected the Reserves as their local cause.  This total is fantastic and will be used to buy new tools to equip our enthusiastic band of volunteers who turn up, whatever the weather and more plants and trees to encourage wildlife.
