Warwickshire has even more appeal when it comes to a trip to our narrowboat glamping abode now, thanks to the news that a new nature reserve is being set up near Bubbenhall.
Warwickshire Wildlife Trust announced that they had recently purchased Bubbenhall Wood and Meadow near the village of Bubbenhall through donations and grants which gained enough funds to make the purchase of the 205-hectare former sand and gravel quarry from Smiths Concrete.
At present, the Trust is already in possession of the neighbouring Ryton Wood, Wappenbury Wood and Old Nun Wood, so the new buy for the charity means that all four areas can now be joined together, forming a 1,000-hectare safe habitat for local wildlife.
Currently, if you were to go walking at the Bubbenhall Woods you can walk on the path that exists there, which is a public footpath. However, the Trust will be reaching out to its volunteers to help them put new paths in place. The new paths would create a far better experience for people to discover more of the reserve.
The Trust will also be calling on its volunteers to carry out a number of surveys and animal and plant species checks, along with installing new gates and building a wildlife viewing hide.
The new purchase for the Trust now brings the number of nature reserves owned by the charity to 65. The 65 nature reserves are located all across Coventry, Warwickshire and Solihull.
