Smestow Valley Local Nature Reserve

Smestow Valley Local Nature Reserve (LNR) is a haven for wildlife, with around 50 hectares (120 acres) of meadows, scrubland and woodland. The reserve is also close to the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal and Smestow Brook.

The main activities at Smestow Valley focus on the enjoyment of the 'great outdoors'.

Our visitors enjoy the wildlife, bird watching, flora and fauna, cycling down the former railway track - long since removed. The route now features flat and mainly level path, making it easy for walkers and cyclists.

There are lots of opportunities for the keen photographer to capture rare/unusual plant specimens, alongside more commonly found favourites.
