About this walk

Oily goughs is a site that we have done lots of work on recently. After a series of amphibian surveys (to make sure there were no protected species on site), we have reprofiled the pond at the southern end of the site. It had been very overgrown with reeds, and was almost completely dried up this year. After relocating some fish and other animals, we scraped a new profile for the pond, which should refill over the winter and look fabulous by summer 2012! There are two other pools ate Oily Goughs (which was named after a man named Gough who used to sell scrap oil on the site many years ago!).

Location details

There is no parking for this park, so you have to park on the opposite side of the road next to the school. There is a wooden nature reserve sign that is visible from the kerb side so you will not miss it. I would recommend dogs on leads from the car to the big field which they are free to run wild.
