About Lings Wood Nature Reserve

This popular local nature reserve in the eastern district of Northampton includes woodland, scrub, ponds and acid grassland. Woodland areas range from plantations of mature Sweet Chestnut, Douglas Fir and Larch to areas which are returning to more native woodland with naturally regenerating Birch, Rowan, Oak and Holly. Wood Anemone, Dog’s Mercury, Violets and climbing Corydalis are all found in the woodland.

The acid grassland areas include typical species such as Sheep’s Sorrel and Gorse, and rarities such as the tiny Birds-foot. Dragonflies, Damselflies, Frogs and Newts all breed in the ponds at the site. A level surfaced track runs in a circuit throughout part of this reserve making it accessible to pushchairs and wheelchairs, but please note that there is no parking onsite.
