Lings

Lings Local Nature Reserve, in the eastern district of Northampton, is made up of a wide variety of habitats - woodland, scrub, ponds, acid grassland and a small area of heathland.


There is one pond in the wood where dragonflies and damselflies can be seen. Wood anemone, dogs mercury and numerous fungi flourish, and the grassland is awash with germander speedwell, lady's bedstraw, pignut and sheeps sorrel.


Here experienced staff lead a range of activities for all ages, enabling local people to enjoy the range of habitats on the site and understand the needs of wildlife.

There are also self-guided trails.
