WINDMILL HILL NATURE RESERVE

Situated on the scarp slope of Windmill Hill, this scrubby grassland has been maintained for centuries by the grazing of farm animals. This continues today with cattle being allowed to graze during the winter months.

This grassland is dotted with lime loving plants and the reserve is important for butterflies

 

.

Access to the Reserve is by permissive footpath which runs from the top of Fish and Anchor Bank to the lane leading from Middle Littleton between Kanes Foods and Botts Skip Hire. There are excellent views across the Vale of Evesham to Bredon Hill and the Malvern Hills.

The Site is maintained by volunters from Worcestershire Wildlife Conservation. This group meets at 10 a.m. on the second Tuesday of every month to carry out various tasks to maintain the area and keep the habitat in the correct state so that the various rare flora and insects continue to occupy the site. Anyone wishing to help in joining the volunteers would be heartedly welcome. Meeting point will be at the top of Fish and Anchor Hill opposite the Car Layby.

In June look for orchids which are readily visible from the path.
