- Barrow Hill Local Nature Reserve
In July 2005, Barrow Hill was declared a Local Nature Reserve to preserve wildlife and geology of a special interest and to allow people to come into contact with and study nature. Recently obtained grant funding will be spent on improving access, habitat management and interpretative materials such as panels and leaflets.
Barrow Hill is one of the most significant and well-loved areas of green space in the Borough. It supports our largest and most diverse area of grassland, ancient woodland, ponds with populations of Great Crested Newt and other important habitats and species.
The area is of high recreational and amenity value for local people and is linked to both the Fens Pools area and the Staffordshire countryside via the Pensnett Railway Walk.
