Puxton Moor is a large area of pasture land with rhynes running along. These rhynes are filled with rare plants and many different animals. Some of the birds that reside in the rhynes are sedge warblers, reed warblers and whimbrel.
During spring and summer other birds, ground nesting birds, come to the moor. The site also contains evidence of Roman habitation and medieval earthwork. The best time to visit is from April till August although Puxton Moor is open at all times. There is a public footpath that runs through the site to provide access. Please be cautious because many of the rhynes are steep and contain deep water. Dogs are allowed, but have to be on lead. There is a parking opportunity opposite the road from the church in Puxton. A car ride from the city centre will bring you to Puxton Moor in about 30 minutes. When taking the bus, the travel will be about an hour and includes a 20 minute walk.
