Willsbridge Valley Nature Reserve

Willsbridge Valley


Willsbridge Valley is an oasis of wildlife amongst modern housing estates. The Siston Brook stream runs through the site and there are 2 ponds. This site has been used for milling, quarrying and a coal dramway in the 19th century. The woodlands are at their best in the spring when it is filled with flowers and you are surrounded by birdsong. Frogs, toads and dragonflies find their home in the ponds whereas dippers and kingfishers can be seen by the stream. Even foxes, badgers and bats are known to be in the area. This valley is ideal for a family day out or if you are interested in geology and history.

The best time to visit is between April and July but it is open at all times. There are public footpaths that run throughout the reserve. Wheelchair users can gain entrance via Willsbridge Hill and can access most of the valley. Dogs are allowed, but must be kept on lead. Parking spots are available on Long Beach Road. You can reach this road in 25-30 minutes or take the bus for 40 minutes.
