Colwick Woods is one of the cities hidden gems. This 50-hectare site of rich grassland and ancient woodland provides an oasis of tranquillity just one mile from the bustle of Nottingham city centre.
Colwick Woods was designated as a geological Site of Special Scientific Interest in 1995 and listed as a Local Nature Reserve in 2004. This site is particularly suitable for walking with a number of well maintained public rights of way paths spanning the woods. Colwick Woods also offers some panoramic views of the Trent Valley - as far as Belvoir Castle - and across the City.
There seems to be a general decline in the hedgehog population. A recent report
shows numbers have dropped by 25% in the last ten years. We would like to know
if anyone has seen any hedgehogs in the Bakersfield, Colwick Woods or Sneinton
