Wild Area

This photo is taken from the path leading west out of Wombourne Park towards the Railway Walk, looking (south ) down towards the Wombrook. The lower pathway along thr brook is just visible. The dark shadow in the right of the photo is caused by the Railway Walk embankment.

This area of ground is deliberately kept uncut during the main growing season, in order to permit a more natural growing area, and thus encourage both local flora and fauna to develop relatively unscathed by the grass-cutting contractors. Hopefully this will lead to the development of a successful micro-ecosystem that will benefit the local water vole population.

Notice the dandelions in seed in the foreground.
