The Field Centre

The Reserve is just over 55 acres (22.5 Hectares) in extent and consists of mixed (mostly broad leaved) woodland of which a third is coppiced commercially, a 4 acre field, ponds, streams, a seepage bog which is the main source of the River Blackwater, about 8 acres of heathland and some native conifers. These very diverse habitats support a wide variety of fauna and flora.


The opening and the closing of the Field Centre is the responsibility of the Rowhill Nature Reserve Society committee.
