Dothill Local Nature Reserve       
For wildlife and you

This haven for wildlife is a large area of green open space in the northwest corner of Telford. Designated as a Local Nature Reserve in 2016, it is owned by Telford & Wrekin Council and freely accessible to the public.

The LNR comprises three main areas: Dothill Pool, Tee Lake and Beanhill Valley. Although it is surrounded by residential areas and main roads, the Reserve is the tranquil home to a diverse range of habitats and species over fairly gentle terrain. There are lakes, streams, woods and open meadows. It is small enough to explore within a few hours, yet large enough to be a peaceful retreat from everyday life.

There are various walks around the Reserve, including the 50 Tree Trail and the shorter, circular route the Three Bridge Way.

The Henge provides a focal point and central place to meet, where the Friends group hold various events throughout the year.

Parking is available a short distance from the west entrances to the Reserve at Admaston House Community Centre. ‘The Pheasant Inn’ at Admaston is also conveniently close.
