Beacon Hill Newark: The site covers an area of 19.4 hectares and has an extensive network of habitats of significant wildlife value including scrub, woodland, hedgerows and grassland. The large central area of the reserve was previously a landfill site. This has now been restored as a wildflower meadow. At the southern edge is a wooded gully and further woodland can be found in the north eastern section of the reserve. A considerable amount of tree planting has been undertaken using a mix of oak, ash, wych elm, hazel and a variety of other shrubs. The area chosen for tree planting was first seeded with a wildflower mix which will enhance the wildlife value of the site whilst the new woodland matures.
