What you’ll find there…
New greenspace for the development at Arborfield Green, where Arborfield Garrison and the School of Electronic & Aeronautical Engineering once stood. Now thoughtfully laid out to encourage wildlife, with wildflower meadows, wildlife ponds, hibernation areas and an impressive bat barn! The perfect place for local people to get a breath of fresh air.
And by the way, if you happen to notice that the stream has an orange tinge to it, this is perfectly natural. It’s an iron rich stream, similar to the one at Rook’s Nest Wood.
