Warley Country Park
Vaughan Williams Way, Warley
Warley Country Park covers 21 hectares of open space for quiet informal recreation. The open space, which has been developed on former farmland, includes sizeable areas of naturally colonising secondary woodland, hedgerows, a stream and a pond.
The rough grassland is scattered with young tree saplings where you may see the following species of flower: Red Clover, Rosebay Willowherb, Bristly Ox-tongue and Scarlet Pimpernel. A variety of bumblebees and butterflies can be seen on the grassland and also Roesel's Bushcricket which is a nationally scarce species. The pond contains Common Reed and Reedmace where Moorhen hide. Birds and invertebrates benefit from having wood, scrub and long grass present in this complex mosaic of habitats.
The Park offers views over Weald and to St. Peter's Church to the north west of the site. Pedestrian access can be gained from Vaughan Williams Way and Crescent Road.
